In my work, I reflect on humanity’s way of communicating. I make (ceramic) sculptures, drawings and video works. I draw inspiration from the combinations of words people use in Facebook posts, how people flirt on the First Dates television show, or how my neighbours talk about politics. The social aspect, the sound or poetical intention of language is important to me. Nowadays, language or social media are sometimes deliberately used to provoke and encourage discussions, anger, and incomprehension. This might be a disturbing idea, but I do like this in an artistic way, and this is also often an underlying motive in my installations.
