“The study of comparative mythology shows humankind as a unity. The same symbols appear and remain in cultures from all around the globe. These symbols come from a common place, which is located in our unconscious. Through my artistic work, I intend to reformulate symbols related to these mythological systems from a contemporary point of view and to give them a new reading, thereby creating an enclave of ideas related to everyone. The repetition of specific symbols gives us an overall picture that defines us as a species. The reproduction of patterns and the concept of repetition are constant within my work.”
