  • Flip flops, set on a big concrete block, used as a metaphor for a foundation of me as a person, as an artist and also as a queer person.
  • Performance art also means to me proposing reflective questions where I come from, or if I come from somewhere, am I moving and which direction am I moving to?
  • It’s about embracing yourself, changes, also questioning yourself where you came from and where you are right now, acceptance, the migration aspect and of course the queer aspect.
