In my work, video becomes a tool for investigating the link between audio-visual languages and our lives. I am interested in creating a dialogue between the staging of a scene and the reality of its participants.
How do these two realities interact and mirror each other?
I film and stage my surrounding and the people I encounter by involving them with acting, role-plays, or improvisation. Accordingly, I set conditions for a scene to develop, often leaving the outcome open and unsolved. I push the ambiguity of the medium borrowing from audio-visual languages their formulas and structures mixing it with non-fictive, improvised or absurd elements.
The act of creating a reality for the camera becomes a way to expose the contradictions and complexities within our existence. In my work I express a constant doubt and uncertainty about who we are and how we are relating to each other.
