Desire, comfort, addiction and heritage is something I keep coming back to in my art practice, I discuss and ask questions about this through my objects.
In my recent work "I mend it with sugar" I investigate what addiction an co dependency can do to us and which emotions can trigger it, with a starting point in my own sugar addiction.
The human brain is set on reward, it's the primary force behind human survival. Our reward system is the same mechanism that enhances both the positive and negative sides of an addiction, which makes it very hard to stop with something you got addicted to.
My investigation has led me to an understanding of the importance to listen and take care of our unwanted feelings like shame, anxiety and sorrow.
I see art as a carrier of a very important function in our society, something that can catch us for a moment and make us to stop and listening and reflect over our own existence and culture. That function is what drives me to do art.
