“The undetermined”

My work expands between diverse artistic media and concepts with basic pillars being the nature of the human soul, its spirituality and need to connect with the divine and its surroundings. I use media that include video, installations and photography and focus on absorbing and realising information that view the cycle of a natural and non-natural destruction and construction. Existing between the Dutch and the Greek cultural background, I combine those two worlds and bring their traditions and morals together introducing them to the melancholy of their scenery.
In concept, my work explores the fine line existing within the duality of things: there is life and there is death, there is the light and then there is the darkness, silence and sound, the material world and the world of the shadows. The fine line where the opposite sides meet I call it ‘the undetermined’ that for many centuries was defined by different gods and prophets. I research how religions attempted to give a shape to ‘the unknown’ creating new morals that even affect our political system today. How nature connects with the spirituality of things, what’s left from our belief, in what way it serves our human nature, how it changed through the years and how religious people today, exist in a modern world of science and technology. Where comes our need to believe in something that we can’t see from? And how did faith end up to be associated with ‘God’ and ‘God’ with light?
