The cocoons, eggs, navel cords, tentacles, vulvas and furry tubes represent an unknown form of life that attracts and repels. Modifying and manipulating my materials thoroughly turns the objects into vibrant organs. The works are extensions of my body as my energy and bodily residues are transferred during the labour-intensive process of knitting and weaving by hand. My energy contains the celebration of growth, love, sexuality, 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.
