We have followed vanishing borders. See how at the edge of the canvas the world unfolds. A language is being built into a distance. We have written our own departures. Far from the sharp limit of place, a horizon emerges and we dissolve.
With transience and movement comes a feeling of existing in a “third space” or non-place; belonging neither here nor there, and because of that, there is a search for an ideal place. Through a language that highlights the fluidity of identity and borderless space, we see a lapse of time: that of coming and going, of speed and stillness, fragments of being; and a deconstruction to re-construct elsewhere.

Thrilled to finally pursue my MFA beginning September 2017.
“At the Slade School of Fine Art we approach the practice of contemporary art and the history and theories that inform it in an experimental, research-oriented and imaginative way. An art school with a world leading reputation, the Slade makes a significant contribution to the field of contemporary art both nationally and internationally.”
I feel very lucky to have found a home to explore all my crazy ideas. I look forward to learning, playing and building my community here in London.
Have you heard about my latest project? Together, with a group of artists and writers in Amsterdam, I started a magazine about home and migration. I was inspired to do something in reaction to the refugee crisis and the growing xenophobia in my homeland and adopted lands. I wanted to create an outlet for voices of migration, seeing as how nearly every person in my life is a migrant and has a story.
With the magazine, I launched the podcast and we have debuted our first episode!
