Repetition is something that is almost always present in my work. This can be a repetitive action or a recurring image. Mostly my works are spacious and almost too big to get a good overview during the work progress.
Because of the spaciousness of the works, it changes the space it’s located in. I play with this aspect in different ways. In some cases the work changes the perception of the space and in other cases it becomes part of the space.
The latest works are about the overwhelming sense of belonging. In our everyday life we forget that we are longing for the feeling of safety and security, but in a way we are always unconsciously searching for this sense of belonging. We want to ‘be part of something’. For example, some people wear only the latest fashion in order to be part of a larger group. But it can be as simple as listening to the same music as your environment.
I try to play with the unconscious longing for a sense of belonging.
