Every time we experience the loss of something associated with our collective history, be it a document, a building, or a person, we feel that we lose our footing in both the present and the future. A disconcerting, disorienting, and ultimately debilitating sensation. Moreover, the ideology of remembering and archiving is strongly felt also in the absence of an actual archive (for instance, when it has been destroyed), which contributes to making all acts of artistic production around the archival challenging.
One key question emerging in my artistic research is how to use fragmentation, discontinuity, and contingency as tools for recontextualising knowledge from an archive. My work often follows formal elements conspire along the lines of creating a dimensional system of purely visual and conceptual entities that can become politically engaging and socially relevant.
