I have always admired Lot's wife for looking back at the destruction of Sodom. She glanced one last time into her burning past and turned into a pillar of salt, and I admire her for that.

 

For the Surrealists, ‘life’ entered the artwork when the banal, the ephemeral and the overlooked were found. I relate deeply to the core idea of the avant-garde; bringing ‘art’ closer to ‘life’, reintegrating art into the practice of life and the practice of displacement, by carrying the unexpected to the pedestal, thus challenging the very way we distinguish art from life. I prefer the combination of seemingly unrelated elements and materials, the assemblage and collision of material, like a distorted staircase or a melting piece of ice.
