My sculptures refer to growth, metamorphoses, reproduction and feminism. The cocoons, eggs, umbilical cords, tentacles, vulvas and hairy tubes are attractive and repellent at the same time. I use the duality of attraction and repulsion as my fundament. My most used technique is the labour-intensive weaving by hand, which is for me a rhythm of storytelling that proceeds thread by thread. Thoroughly modifying and manipulating my materials turns the sculptures into vibrant organs that almost seem to come to life like science fiction creatures, putting the rules of nature and culture to the test. My work represents the celebration of growth, love, the gained female freedom, a longing for freedom that has not been reached yet, and the remembrance of female oppression: a battle that has been lasting for thousands of years. Within their alien ambiance, the works are containers of something that has left or something that is yet to come - or nothing at all.
