Artist Statement


In July 2018 I graduated at Masters Institute of AKV Sint Joost, Den Bosch. As a photographer and artist I am curious about scripted behavior. This derives from my own ambiguous relationship with control. I observe, write, create, imagine and perform in order question the rules and conventions coming from this control.

I see the world around me as a film script, as a guide we use to structure our lives. With my camera I try to dissect routines, gestures and rituals in an attempt to get a grip on these mechanisms.
