Film installation with prints
A conceptual window installation at EXLAB, a piece based on my values in life, all rooted in personal experiences. Using the human body for an inspirational expression of the artists mindset.
A four-week exploration of the digital in a physical setting, During the several lockdowns we have gone through, we have been invited to experience art that was meant to be delivered physically in the digital landscape. It has pushed emerging artists to shift their studios into their laptops. The lockdown has questions how we use our body especially as artists.. Exlab is a space that allows us to reconsider the screen as a space, the browser as a material and the user as a viewer.
