some of favourite found things
1. Summarize your work in one word?
2.What inspires you to continue making work?
Experiencing a moment outside, seeing someone’s work or having a new thought - and THEN there is a brief moment where i feel - that something makes sense now. In simpler words. I suppose what inspires me is to untangle all the madness.
3. What are you currently working on at the moment?
A short-movie about the borders between private and public spaces.
4. Who inspires you most to push your work further?
A spiderweb-wonder-network of friends. The collective which i am a part of, called stockdale. Harun Farocki, Martha Rosler, Kader Attia, Olaffur Eliasson, Yoko Ono, Hito Steyerl, Toni Morrison, Unica Zürn and Ana Mendieta’s work.
5. If you could say anything to your former self, regarding your art practice, that would help you progress what would it be?
Pay more attention to the things you have a (almost urgent) need to create rather than what you think you should create.
