While studying, decomposing and reforming objects from daily life, I create sculptures by merging different elements that are inspired by mass production and medieval craftsmanship. I construct sculptural objects by applying a wide range of techniques, from designing elements to manufacturing them using digital techniques such as laser cutting, CNC milling and 3D printing.
At This art Fair, I am presenting an installation with new sculptural objects. These objects might look familiar at first, but I invite you to take a closer look. In my work, elements of mass production and craftsmanship are brought together as an attempt to activate the viewer’s imagination and question their everyday associations.
