“I am interested in everything I can say, but my focus is mainly on everyday life preoccupations. We are controlled by politics. We are controlled by systems that we are forced to adapt to. In all this, there are a lot of sad and funny things. And as an artist l have a small obsession with art history, I always try and dig into it and see how artists have played with it in the past and where my practice stands within this timeline. ”
