A work of yours that you particularly like and why?
A work that I really like and keep coming back to is nest. It's a series of objects, that are adapted to corners, walls or protrusions. The series has been ongoing since 2019 and has been divided into several generations. Similar to an evolutionary process, with each new generation, I develop more objects that are further adapted to their surroundings. This allows me to experiment with a variety of different forms and structures in the studio and also respond to the architecture on site in each exhibition.

What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part is spending time in the studio developing new forms and experimenting with different materials.

What makes something worth making?
I don't usually think about whether I should make something or not. Things just come up while I'm working. But there are pieces that remain unfinished for a long time. At some point I have to do something with them or get rid of them. That can be very difficult for me sometimes.

From which artist would you like to own a work?
A painting by Agnes Pelton. One of her mythical alien landscapes.

Which art movement has inspired you the most so far?
New Wave Science-Fiction and, more recently, the comeback of body and eco-horror in cinema and literature.
