A floorplan

Berlijn, 18 april 2020

“My first work was based on the floorplan of my room (18 years old). My plan was to write about these rooms for the rest of my life. Then I discovered that it was better to write with objects. And I got really obsessed by the way objects dictate our thinking and how our thinking is directed by the objects that surround us. And so it became very logical to build a selfportrait with objects.”
