Before freedom reappeared on the public agenda, I began to concern myself actively with the concept and its meaning, translating it into objects that range across the various areas (for example, gender relations, society, religion) in which it is reflected.

To what extent are we really free?
Is freedom possible?
Is there such a thing as inner freedom?

These, to me, are unanswered questions that require further investigation.
My work is not limited to a particular medium: I use whatever expressive means appear most suitable, from cast iron to feathers, combining found objects with materials that can be shaped at will, to embody and convey my ideas.

Most of the titles of the individual works are summary and deliberately neutral, allowing sufficient scope for the viewer’s own interpretation.
