I work as a performance and video artist in the field of visual arts, acting primarily as a solo performer. My former serial, performative video works were concerned with the dialectics between individuality and stereotype, difference and repetition in our reality which is shaped by the media and its spectacular shows. These performances were developed through experimentation with performance machines - certain work structures and experimental assemblies (e.g. random number generators) - which forced me as performer to perform and liberated me at the same time.

Nowadays, especially in my graphic works, I research mass media phenomena between the poles of difference and repetition, abundance and emptiness. So I use and quote slogans, headlines, pop lyrics and details of advertisement posters and put them into new contexts or stringent, comparative series aiming to emerge the utopian or ideological dimensions of these products and the placing of the individual in these days.
