In my multidisciplinary artistic practice, I work with architecture, the memory of buildings, architectural history, and heritage. I mainly work with scale models, which in their turn can lead to the creation of sculptures, photographs, drawings, and textiles, often coming together in installations and books.

In my projects, I try to ‘excavate’ the memory of buildings by researching archival materials combined with my own observations and translating these into scale models.

I like to approach a new project by staying in a building or site for a longer period of time. By doing so, I try to listen, study and translate the building’s life, materials, and memory into objects that often come together in multi-disciplinary installations and autonomous objects.

In my work, I combine architectural history and heritage with my own observations and experiences to create new narratives on our fundamental, yet difficult relationship with our built environment. I have a strong interest in the way in which buildings absorb ideas and ideologies, fears and desires, memories and flaws; both those of the architect as well as those of the resident. Therefore, I always try to approach materials, buildings, and cities as if they have a memory of their own.
