Visual artist working mostly with film, investigating the possibilities of animation, documentary, amateurism and forms of articulation. Since 2002, I have been involved with a variety of projects and collaborations, including installations, film performances, sound works, etc., but in last few years I have concentrated on short films in which I combine stop frame and continuous shots.
Her work is concerned with everyday events, like cooking, cleaning or football to explore the role of women, or the roles women have been assigned. Through her works she questions social normativity and its changes, the position of women and the everyday and how this affects public space and social relations. She uses documentary elements in film, sound, installation and books, and is increasingly interested in the voice and the possibilities of articulation.
