With education in both Fine Arts and Philosophy, I have broad working experience in the cultural field. From exhibiting my own visual works to curating exhibitions; organising working periods; producing residencies and symposia; working within an artist collective; giving and developing workshops and presentations; to participating in talks; either initiated myself or commissioned. This diverse, symbiotic practice is aimed at active engagement within and beyond the cultural field, both visually and theoretically, focussed on the role of art and aesthetics in contemporary challenges, both socially, politically, and metaphysically.
