A PERSONAL PRESENTATION OF MY WORK
My new 4 minuet feature video is now up on Canon Connected playlist, in which they asked me to film a video describing my work You're Gorgeous, You're Mad.
This happens to be the first video I make that focuses on my working method, and it gives a brief intro to the project as well as a quick look behind the scenes.
You can view it here. Hope you’ll enjoyed it!
SOLO SHOW AT THE COPENHAGEN PHOTO FESTIVAL
This summer my work, You’re Gorgeous, You’re Mad, will be presented as a solo show at the Copenhagen Photo Festival in Denmark, one of Europe’s leading festivals of contemporary photography.
During this time of global uncertainty, the festival team is determined to bring new inspiration to the realm of contemporary photography and video and therefore, whether the event will be physical or virtual, the organisers are adamant that the festival will take place as planned, between June 18 and 14, 2020.

ARTIST RESIDENCY IN VIRGINIA
In July 2018, I participated in the “Experimental Film Virginia” Artist in Residency program, situated in Cape Charles, Virginia, USA. The residency was an ideal place for me to create two new projects: The video project You're Gorgeous, You're Mad which was completed during the residency, and a new ongoing photography project.
The video is a series of intimate audio, video and textual confessions, depicting people who take an intense and revealing look at who they are.
The new photography series is composed of portraits of local people standing on a bright white cube against a background of local scenery. The white cube is a stage, a symbol, and an object encompassing multiple meanings and elements.
