Artistic approach: Creating connections. In her artistic work she deals with human relationships and creative interactions. She experiments with social spaces and their influence on behavior and thinking. As a curator, she wants to

create encounters, opportunities, and spaces in everyday situations to get in touch with the unknown and create something for or with others in a new dynamic. She loves the in-between, the intersections, the common, the intermingling or the oblique. She needs stimulation by life and people, and uses performative irritations and disruptions as artistic methods.
