Through my diverse work I often consider the foundations of how we perceive and experience our surroundings – the conventions and categories which underlie the comprehension, or not, of the world around us. I'm interested in place, how we find a sense of place and how the human can be seen in every intervention in the landscape, be it accidental or with purpose. The works relate to the physical organisation of space as well as to the way we perceive the world around us. Works involved for instance recorded traces of other people’s actions, rearranged mediated images or confronting gestures vis-à-vis the actual organisation of the space.
Many of the works question, rethink or counterbalance existing forms of representation or organisation, and explore alternative ways of perceiving and relating to our surroundings. Ranging from photographic archives and films, to landscape interventions and sculptural works, my practice has concerned itself with for example futurology, public space, museology, human geography, ecology and utopian architecture.
In 2005 together with Maarten Vanden Eynde I founded Enough Room for Space (ERforS).
Enough Room for Space (ERforS) is a non-profit organization initiating and coordinating events and residency / research projects. ERforS tries to act as freely as possible, always putting the context and the idea before the medium, challenging the barriers between different disciplines (artistic, scientific or activist).
