My work is an investigation into human relations and intimacy manifested in ceramic sculptures. In the shapes created, I see a storyline on how they struggle, how they care, how they comfort each other, and how they are pulling away. I see strength and vulnerability, I see movement, growth, and attraction.
In our society, we have normalized the idea of superior relations. Often the romantic relationship – cis, hetero and monogamous – the boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, or wife, is valued more. We understand everything in a binary context – nature vs. culture, masculine vs. feminine. Why is that? This hierarchical structure is so rooted in our society that we almost don’t see it. It influences the way we perceive and socially validate each other.
I strive to understand myself and my surroundings through anything but normative assumptions, anything but normative ideals – anything but the concept of normativity.
