“I am interested in the relationship between memory and narrative. Individual’s history consists of personal narratives such as stories about family, friends, and everyday happenings. Some would say those narratives are just ordinary and small, sometimes boring to others. However, society and history are formed by collecting those personal stories. I would like to create a connection between those personal histories which would not be told by anybody and found narratives as in mythology and folklore. My artistic practice is complex, using various techniques and elements in the installations. It evokes the influences of the Internet and digital environment where people can access random information and images.”
