tentacular thinking

Liquefying, dissecting, obscuring and falling in love became, for me, a process to combine, imitate or simulate unsuited objects . I am curious about ‘behaviour; in wider spectrum in relation between inherent behaviours of the materials, seductive surfaces, physiognomy, obsessive ponder on manmade and ‘natural’. Fascination with dichotomy between the organic, synthetic and technology eventually express itself in rather conflicting, unsettling and humoristic but slightly dystopian relationships. Titles often enhance this very uncanny nature of the assemblages intertwined with slightly anxious choreography which is addressing ponder on ‘realness’, ‘functionality’, ‘flesh’ and     coexistence of “stuff’ around.
