Artist Statement

My work evolves around the tactility of the present body, in relation to the eternal absence and the perishability of everything. I work through ceramic sculpture in black clay that I fire in reduction, which gives my objects a metal-like surface and leads the mind to some kind of armour with a durable promise. A promise, in contradiction to the fragility of the material. A tearing sense between appealing and intimidating, static and organic, life and death. The opposites enforce each other. The body in relation to the material and the world is both my theme and my method where I see the present body as the basic condition to experience and make objects; it is the subject, the object and the execution in my work.
