Should there be a difference between your work as an Artist, and who you are in real life?
Personally, I think most art is an extension of the artist and one can not exist without the other. Whatever keeps u busy flows into the things you make.
Do you think you carry a certain responsibility as an Artist?
Well, responsibility might be a big word, but I do intend to make things that have a meaning now, and perhaps later as well.
Alternative documents of the times we live in, that give a different reading of the sentiment and vibes of this time and place.
I feel responsible for documenting the things I think are worth documenting.
How has the pandemic influenced you and your work (process)?
I changed my process quite radically to be honest – I quit my routine of consuming a vast amount of newsmedia on a daily basis.
I was lucky to spend the lockdown in the countryside, and it felt really absurd to be so busy with all these things that weren’t really touching my daily reality. I decided to invert my process, where first I would have the daily news be my guide, I now only consult my archives when something that happens in my daily life requires clarification. Feels much healthier!
