I am a Dutch-based multidisciplinary artist. My work is concerned with human consciousness and perception explored through art films, video installations, live cinema performances, and poetry. Space, corporeality, storytelling and filming technologies are treated as symbolic tools to create a critical approach towards human condition, with a long term interest in Eastern philosophies and practices. My artistic background includes sculpting, painting, drawing, writing, dance and the performing arts.
Pasolini’s Desert - poem
Go Empty - research for the creation of the animation dance film, a collaboration between The Netherlands and Israel.
The poem Pasolini’s Desert is the base of a future animation dance film featuring the dancer Ellah Nagli (Dutch National ballet, Gottenburg ballet, Israeli Ballet), and myself. Videographer and animator Kobi Vogman, camerawoman Dani Willliamson, and sound artist, composer and musician Hagai Eisenberg.

I see you and thus, get me out of here - A notebook dance video (part 2)
In Pretext I explore the boundaries between live performance, live cinema, and filming technologies. The project is developed as a journey through different countries - The Netherlands, France, Italy, Norway. In each country another layer of the personage is unearthed.
(project in development)
A cinematic, dance film, inspired on the radical consequences of warfare, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrom suffered by refugees and displaced persons. The film presents an ambiguous visual and auditory metaphor that sheds light on notions of vulnerability, and resilience through a stance of peripherality. Corporeality within metaphorical landscape and sound composition are the stones on which an architecture of trauma is built. The footage is shot in PAF (Fr.) A collaboration with composer and photographer, Simone Giacomini.
'The Inhabitant' is a multidisciplinary work where cinema, story telling, and dance are creating one chain of events through which a personage is born.
