edgelands (in progress) looks at the vacant spaces that have evolved when the borders of eastern europe opened up, and when those same countries became full members of the european union.
my central concern lies in exploring transitional spaces, those in-between places where architecture, landscape and the built environment often intersect, and where a dialogue – of absence rather than presence – is created. my practice is driven by explorations of these charged, shifting entities – buildings that have come to the end of their functionality, the changing functionality of a landscape, human interruptions in the landscape - that exist in urban, rural and suburban contexts
the resultant photoworks are realised both with the gallery space and as site-specific installations and interventions.
