My work consists in discovering and telling stories. Always it is fragments that I collect from situations apart and lives afar, I knead them, blow on them, and that's when they sing together as a quire. My senses are voracious. I dig away the floor in hidden archives, sometime recovering the recipe of meals eaten by medieval poets, and gorging like an ant bear. I interbreed digital textures with analogue film supports, if I need photography. As sculptor, I forge the mechanism for an army of plant-seeds' catapults. My environmental-art pieces lately consist of collective telepathic exercises, which seems a consistent way to prevent more trash in the ecosystem.

The gathering of selected trashes is itself a great part of my work. I collage, or melt, or write, merging together the fragments. And when it appears it is done.



As visual artist, my work focuses on linear and non-linear narration as an art form. Interested in operational realism, the presentation of the functional sphere in an aesthetic arrangement, and its inter-relations, I combine photography, moving image, installation, sculpture, environmental art, and experimental live art.

My work has been shown at international biennials, Museums and relevant institutions, as well as cutting edge and independent alternative spaces and events.

Since 2005 I live and work in Helsinki, where I founded Namastic Art Collective, a non profit organization dealing with exhibitions, workshops and events.
