ARTIST'S STATEMENT

"I often begin with a portrait of a person or place. The outcome is a video or film, a text or a textile; something foldable that can be stored away easily, or something standing on thin chopstick legs. Something that might collapse under the eyes of the viewer - in a film, this could be its fragile narrative structure.  The viewers are left with holding up their side by themselves. In this way, I am constructing attractive traps."
