“Translation is not only switching from one language to another, it is also something we do to explain our mind to the world, which is in turn language itself. Most of my work explores language, culture, and the understanding of difference. Using text, forms, images and colours, I like to deconstruct discourses and traditional narratives to find the spaces in between elements, the differences, which might aid or prevent communication. Because it is in fact hard to explain such a simple and personal thing, I like to use art to translate meaning.”
