"My main area's of concern are geography and cartography as a means of dealing with issues of borders, isolation, and the compressed and fast social life, which exist in a specific time and space. In my owrk I use installations, videos and drawings to address the fluidity of cultures and people in contradiction with the rigid and static charting of maps, with their clearly demarcated borders. The work is the result of tracings depending on collective and personal memories. My work is the journey on the physical as well as the political map."
