Text for me has always been about simplifying complicated ideas and even visuals and aspirations that come in the form of emotions and thoughts. Words are tricky since they form a paradoxical relationship with the object/idea/subject they are attached to, as much as they help us understand something; they also limit our perception of things. My work here is exploring that relationship by taking elements from my “daily” life, such as using Instagram and joining somebody’s life or going out for a coffee with a friend and writing something down on tissue paper.

The works probe ideas of identity and perception in the age of media through unconventional and performativity means.
