  • My practice is a process of discovery that interweaves personal experience with collective mythologies, memory and traces of the point of our origin. Interested in giving form to the intangible, my current work explores the history of place with its preexisting matter and reworks it to uncover some truths through archival material, film and installation. My most recent body of work is the product of several pilgrimages to Zakopane, Poland.
