“For this performance, I’m working with erotic objects of mass production.
I believe that desire is the impulse for creativity.
Working on my own desire’s aesthetic is a way for me to fight against its normative standard”.
Recent performances: Transmediale, Berlin, Trouble Festival, Brussels; Dancekiosk, Hamburg…
