I am a Luxembourgish visual artist based between Luxembourg and Venice, Italy, with an MFA in New Technologies for the Arts from the Fine Arts Academy in Venice.
In my artistic research, I endeavour to engage with the world around me, particularly developing reflections on issues that are important to me personally. Frequently my point of departure is a question, which touches me personally, a story, an activity, a habit, a state of being. A particular theme which runs through a body of my work is that of abandonment and adoption. My work frequently contains elements related to other interests including politics (I have a degree in political science/international relations from the University of California, Santa Barbara.) psychology, sociology, cultural anthropology, philosophy and art history.
I seek to develop works, which communicate aspects of these questions and my reflections in a universal manner, even when the initial inspiration for the work is rooted in personal experience. Ideally, the resulting art works move viewers to then think differently about the issues and the world at large.
In my practice, I select the media for an art work based on what I consider corresponds best to the idea. However, I most frequently work with video, photography, and installation and often integrate text into the works as well. I have worked as well with mediums such as interactivity, digital animation and performance.
