Artist

My work is concerned with identity as a flexible and context-dependent entity. Parameters in social situations and collective understanding influence how we picture ourselves. These parameters, and how they influence us, is my target of investigation.

Through photographic and filmic studies I search for the lines between the subjective and the objective in our self-understanding. When are we the masters of our own expression as social actors, and when are we not? What social context moves us? In what way? How or when do we welcome it?
