MA work


My MA collection started from wide research into the culture and the country I come from. Studying abroad and living away from all that I was used to made me deeply consider and appreciate the habits I grew up with. The objects I developed during this year are the result of a stream of consciousness, a process of capturing representative images into a physicality that became ultimately shoes.

  • My practice is driven by many different aspects of life, but it always refers back to myself and how I perceive reality. I am attracted by everything which is beautiful, the male body and how we now perceive sexuality and the gender question. I am deeply interested in art history, and results that produce contamination between old and new. Ultimately in my work there is always some sort of celebration of nature and its seduction.
