Using eclectic research methods and experimental investigation, I aim through my art to find a way to understand myself and my surrounding better. Nurturing curious energy, I question my role as an artist within the social and contemporary urgencies of today. Exploring different perspectives, I try to challenge the complexity of existence using alternative narratives, as well as creating new worlds on the base of these speculations/ideologies. Using various mediums, my main topic of research is exploring the multidimensionality of spirituality, as well as reinventing our relationships to nature, the divine, and the community we find ourselves in.
It would be lovely to continue to grow and start working with like-minded people on projects relevant to my practice/field of research. I want to deepen my theoretical and craft base in order to gain more experience and find ways to cater ideas in a meaningful and mindful way.
Learned during the studies
The academy is a place to grow, make mistakes, learn and experience. During my four years at the HKU, I created a strong base to branch out from. Having the possibility to change and challenge myself with valuable support, experiment and create a sense of community, really influenced my practice and my worldview today.

Patty Morgan Internship
Apart from my tasks as an intern, I was also one of the artists selling through their online gallery. Getting to know each other better, I was presented with multiple possibilities to showcase my work, meet other artists and learn the practical element of the business. I had the opportunity to showcase my work besides my internship in the gallery as well, thanks to the creative director who liked the recent work I had made. That resulted in a solo show whose opening took place on the 25th of June named “Eclectic Wonderland”, and lasted for a month.
