An important starting point in my work is escape, which may concern the escape from systems, order or codes in society and the mind. I try to lift the everyday to the specific and make this into the core of my work. A normal gesture, an architectonic rhythm, a walk, a simple behavioural pattern, an unexpected movement or a strange moment: I try to enlighten or frame situations in a subtle way, so that they become noticed instead of passed by silently. Once in a while I stage in my work: I create conditions in which I try to evoke an ‘event’. Over the last two years I have noticed how many of my works are ‘moments in-between’. By taking those moments out of their normal context, I create a different reading of the actual time and event: the moment becomes meaningful through its received emphasis.
