'' Yesterday's luxury becomes today's need''
All we are surrounded by is transience. What narrative remains while I transform the presence of things?
The strength of destruction is my motivation to create. I deliberately blur the edges of my use and non-use of materials.
Being en route on the one hand and human evolution the other hand seem to be linear processes: you start at one point and you end at another. This way, I seem to have started out in Cameroon and ended up in The Netherlands. My movement from Africa to Holland seems to be, at first, some ‘progress’, some ‘evolution’ on my part. However, progress and evolution are not bound to either time or place. They are first and foremost, human-bound. And so is deterioration and de-evolution. I have been moved and touched by the need of people to evolve and to innovate on the one hand and by their allowing decay and deterioration to happen without taking any actions on the other hand. This… Every human being faces boundaries. Sometimes they take the form of a barrier imposed from the outside, a regime in which you look for some “space to live and breathe”. Boundaries can also take the form of an internal barrier or restriction, imposed by nature. The restricted life-cycle of flowers is a good example (growth-blossoming-withering/old age). My working method reawakens us to the transitory nature of existence.
