My work takes shape from the immediate surrounding I am working in. It reflects the cultural and social aspects of that environment. It is time based and often shows the process. According to the place and the situation, the choices of the materials differ; depending on the availability. It shows the hybridization of various elements or materials.

Since the last eleven years, I have been performing, using my body, voice in spaces as well as video, photographs and installations. My performances are atmospheric, sometimes ritualistic and they usually contain props. They show the cyclical circles of destruction and renewal as well as formal and conceptual ideas and the framework of personal references that inform the fragile divide between my life and art.
