A network is a mode or inquiry for me. A way to investigate my position as an artist through networks (people, things). I create a moving cultural web through my work, by collaborations with schools, cultural institutions and other artists, in which I mediate through my aesthetics and ability to be (digitally) interactive, i.e. involving others in it. On the one hand, I want to open up culture through concepts, conversations and aesthetics and on the other, I use my own visual language (my drawings, paintings and glass works) to tighten and, when possible, to deploy. My work thus acts as a membrane: two poles, one aesthetic and singular, the other interactive and communicative.
