“My art practice is concerned with the interrelationship between the production and reception of art today. That is to say my practice incorporates, reflects and interrogates “art” through its modes of definition and being: the artist, the recipient, the museum or gallery itself, along with it’s corporate image up to a specific discourse. Using its current state as my starting point, I examine the conditions of a situation within the art context. I am interested in the physical and discursive space offered as a framework for the action that takes place there. In my work no single object or result dominates the other components that emerge in the process and in fact questioning and replacing the clearly defined art object with open systems is a fundamental concern of my artistic practice. With actors, audio tracks, city maps or physical additions I create a new structure that is woven very tightly with the original situation.”
