“My passion for contemporary installation and art events stems from a fascination with the future of art institutions. I believe that the future lies with art, its power to engage critically with institutions and its ability to establish a relationship between artist, spectator and environment, encouraging viewers to collaborate and create an affective relationship with their surroundings.”
