My work consists of performances, paintings, sculptural installations, photo and video work, in which I use myself and selfmade objects, costumes and scenography to create images and stories. A recurring object and theme in my work is ‘the mask’, which I use to explore the complexity of human identity. Every human exists out of many faces, all of which originate from the perception of the other. A mask is an object that represents the multilayered character and is a tool for a ritual or performance, to become ‘the other’.

For This Art Fair I present ‘The Lazy Horse Salon’, a salon-like solo presentation of paintings, work on paper, photography and masks. It contains a lot of new work that I made during a residency in Mexico City. In the middle of the salon you will find a life-size soft horse on which you can sit or lay down to enjoy the work and some Mexican Carmen atmosphere.
