Her work navigates between the critical potential of fiction and re-enactment and the complications present in documentary material. Involving elements of intimacy and personal narratives, in her videos domestic and private environments become a place of investigations as a politically and socially charged context. She is interested in looking at situations and spaces in which people redefine the terms and conditions for production, collaboration, or political struggle looking at social spaces and modes of being which - by their own existence and actions - question current hegemonic forms of performing and power structures.
Besides her individual artistic practice she currently co-runs WET, a video art collective based in Rotterdam.
