ME / HER
The "Me/Her" project deals with empathy and embodiment. I have "domesticated" a silicone doll of a small child's size, and through different poses and movements, I try to find common ground that connects her to my body. Empathy is interrogated in this work both in a direct (caring for the 'little body') and in an inverted context, reaching into the darker layers of humanity.
The project will result in a full-length photographic series and video documentation of the process.

From One Side to the Other
On the 3rd of March 2022 I crossed the Estonian-Russian border to the Russian border town of Ivangorod and asked everyone I met if they would want to be on the other side.

RITUAL: OILING OF THE OLIVE TREE
The deadly bacterium Xylella fastidiosa has killed millions of olive trees in southern Italy. The infection limits the tree's ability to move water, over time its leaves turn dry and the tree dies.
For the ritual, you must take three liters of olive oil and oil the olive tree again.
BETWEEN THE STONES
I'm being held by the stones as if there is no entrance and exit, only a place in between.
The body is still and the waves are out of my control.
I just close my eyes and wait for three waves to go over me.
