I am a visual artist with a research-based practice that unfolds at the crossroads of art, science, and technology. The relationship between individual and collective motivations is central to my artistic practice—through which I explore how new meanings, values and ethics are (co-)created through participatory and collaborative processes in art. I seek to explore individual identities as historical inheritance of human social and cultural constructions encouraging their interrogation and the collective building of new ways of relating to the world. I consider art a means to provide the embodied experience that theory itself lacks and help to account for the new meanings that emerge alongside our technologically mediated society. Such transformations entail new forms of ethical relations between individuals and systems, for what I aim to switch from historical oppressive models of control to a collective production of power. My work materialises and is documented through different media (installation, video, and photography).
I am part of FRIEC collective, a global platform for urban ecological art that nurtures humanity’s cultural relationships with nature; Translocalia, a network of artists, curators, designers, and professionals from different domains that plan for the future through art; Luv ‘til It Hurts, an artist-led project about HIV and stigma; and a member of the board of the Dutch Association of Aesthetics (Nederlands Genootschap voor Esthetica).
