Narrative has been an integral part of my work since the beginning. It started with composing soundtracks for stories in pictures, animation, and became live art with myself performing my own story in performance art, almost thirty years ago.
Stories , the exhibition at The Gallery, Glen Carlou, suits me perfectly, as my sculptures, dolls or figurines, are all characters belonging to a narrative. These characters are developed from nostalgic memory of people I met, knew or observed. Together with the found objects from all over (adding to the integrity of the figurine), they become replicas of real life characters with a personality and a life story of their own. The viewer adds more information to the character’s biography with his or her personal association, triggered memory or imaginings of the little “actor’s” traits.
