Author's statement

My work is about relationships. How people connect or disconnect with each other. Is life good or bad? Don’t we need both to survive?
Lebensraum is about two men who made their life as perfect as it could be for them, within a small living space, their own habitat. But their perfect world is lacking something and they build a female mechanical live size doll. With Lebensraum I also want to show my respect and honor for the work of Buster Keaton, one of my big inspirational sources for the work I do.
