Using worldbuilding and experimental narratives, she builds fantastical scenarios which explore how technology materializes as part of power structures and how it influences both public and private spaces.
She often repurposes and remixes existing content, whether it's contemporary imagery sourced from the internet or archival materials, weaving a web of pop-culture references. Her work blends and contrasts different mediums in order to highlight the stark contrasts of how we engage with the digital world. Her projects range from multi-screen installations to textiles, digital drawings and AI-generated videos.
A dystopian Rotterdam
I am currently developing a big project about a future dystopian Rotterdam inspired by the reconstruction politics of the city after the bombing of the Second World War, reimagined in today’s context of constant urban renewal, displacement of socio-economic groups and the development of surveillance technology. Part of this project I made a series of installations and am currently working on two large scale textile works and a short film.
Current work in progress
I'm now working on two large scale textile pieces based on my scenario set in a future Rotterdam. The work uses references from medieval tapestries and socialist murals to explore how art is used by the state to convey ideology and create myths about urban environments.
Her work has been exhibited in solo shows at White Cuib and Visual Kontakt gallery in Cluj-Napoca, Romania and group shows at Ars Electronica festival (Linz, Austria), Het Nieuwe Instituut (Rotterdam, NL), Dutch Design Week / Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven, NL), Rijksmuseum Twenthe (Enschede, NL), V2_ Lab for Unstable Media (Rotterdam, NL), Technische Sammlungen (Dresden, DE), Gallery Ursula Walter (Dresden, DE).
Her work has been supported by CBK Rotterdam, Stimuleringsfonds, Amarte Fonds, Goethe Instituut, Stichting Droom en Daad and Romanian Cultural Institute New York. Two of her works are in the collection of the Dutch Government.
