Artist Statement

Her practice is concerned with the questions that arise over ideas of legitimacy. She appropriates various mediums to explore culture crisis, speculative questions surrounding national identity, and legitimized culture, with an absurdist’s sense of humour. She makes music videos, installations, paintings, prints, and ceramics to address the social normalizated linguistics, actions, epistemological documentation, and ‘common’ practices. Her most recent work is looking at maps, borders and national boundaries.
