My pieces of jewellery and body related objects present a platform for interaction.
I work around the notion of play as an invitation to reinterpret our relationship with others and the environment. Playing provides endless possibilities of escaping the ordinariness of everyday life. To immerse oneself in a game free our imagination to acknowledge parallel situations making us question the concept of reality. By creating opportunity for the unexpected and the unfamiliar, we allow for spontaneous response to the sensuous character of objects, materials, places and individuals. Because the idea of play enables communication of experience in a sensitive way, it carries the potential to link and harmonize the personal and the social body at the non-rational level. I create pieces of jewellery and body related objects as a mean to emphasize the participative connection between the artist’s work and the participant, letting the idea of the unachieved to stimulate a dialogue.
