My practice is intentionally provocative, dealing with issues that require certain self assurance. In my sculptures and installations I build unnerving narratives using animals, both physically and metaphorically, to challenge different emotions and perceptions. My research is dealing with the materiality of animals while creating scenarios where the finished piece evolves around questioning the viewer’s perception. These perceptions are questioned by facing the viewers with provocative query about the dilemmas around the hardline of ethics (such as materiality of the body after death and beauty) with the illusion of cruelty and humor in mind. I am exploring where the boarder line of ethics is, which seems to be not present. The ethics determined by many different factors, such as species of animals, way of justification, surrounding environment and on the individual viewing it.
By going down this path, I want my work to become a lightning rod of existing questionable constructs, through cultural aesthetics, humor and the materiality of the skin.
