“In search of lost parts of my childhood I try to think outside the reality I was socialised into and create new ones with my parents and self. Through these I explore the constructed reality of the family and question the boundaries between us, between child/adult, self/other, nature/culture, real/fake in attempt to revive my unconditioned self, beyond the family bubble. Although easily assumed to be photoshopped or faked, upon closer inspection the images are often realised to be more real than first expected. Involving staged installations, the cartoonesque and the performative, I look back to my younger self and attempt to re-capture childhood nature through my assuming adult eyes.”
