My interest for industrial materials is of course based on their phusical qualities and aesthetic values but also on the associations they carry within them, which speaks to me of urbanisation, ephemeral architectures and physical work. My work can be seen as an assemblage of immaterial and material layers, desires and projections interwoven within the physical components used. And when it comes to exposing invisible structures, I see strong similarities between the categorising of the taxonomy of plants (invasive, decorative, useful), the system of labor (career lader) and the hierarchy of creative practices (crafts and art).
