ARTIST STATEMENT: Each ideology engineers its own mythology. The defining character of that mythology is determined by cultural, political and religious mechanisms in the service of the ideology. I am interested in the way ideology-driven aesthetics are adopted and transformed by individuals as self-defining spiritual symbols.
I work with photographs, discarded objects and images from history, both analog and digital. I take them apart and put them back together in alternative forms in search of an archeological network of contemporary culture while exposing, dismantling and restructuring existing relations between the larger scale of history and intimate sphere of the individual.
