IN CASE OF CONTACT WITH EYES,
RINSE IMMEDIATELY WITH PLENTY OF WATER

STATEMENT
Hello,

I'm an artist interested in day-to-day rituals.
I see them as markers of power/subordination relationships
in situations of supernatural hidden in mundane reality.
I'm driven by the idea that the refusal of your own will and
giving away the control to the supernatural are intended to
hack the capitalist logic taking actions that are beyond logic.

I believe the so-called alternative knowledge is a tool of
research that is deeply connected to visual art practices,
which have a long history of rituals themselves.

My personal art ritual begins in exhibition space while
building an exposition. My preferred practice is creating
adaptive site-specific and context-based multi-object
installations based on previous research of a group of rituals.
I mostly use modified items of mass production and
indoor advertising technologies to trace in real life imagery and
narratives found online in post-digital state of things.
