“My practice is about composing with different elements. Anything can fit. My practice is about composing with different elements. Anything can fit. The elements make sense through how they are presented. The works about the construction of words started with signatures. As a child, when you have to sign, people can read your name, but as more time passes, it becomes more unreadable. The more you appropriate it from yourself, the more true the signature becomes. Writing is very close to drawing and in this work, the words become shapes and give a visual musicality to the installation. They help the eyes of the viewer to go from one place to another.” The artist said to 1Granary in a recent interview.
