Project: The Fitting Room
The works are evolved around the presentation of the self. They come from my experiences in moving around a lot and a constant switching of environment. I always feel like I have to re-introduce myself to these surroundings to find my own identity within them. Trough my installations, sculpture or performance I ask the viewer to co-deal with the questions you ask yourself in the split second before you present yourself. The most recent works have been developed in a basement studio that was very demanding of an intervention with the structure. The sculptures became submissive to that same structure. It became a fitting room. The images shown here are made during the re-build of the fitting room for the final exhibition.
