I create sculptures by combining objects with seemingly human or animal legs. By doing this, I investigate the meanings associated with those particular objects and invite the viewer to reconsider them. Absurdity and ridiculousness are recurrent elements in my artwork. The addition of legs is intended as a new evolutionary step in the objects' lives in the same way as the first sea creatures were able to move on land when they grew legs for the first time three hundred and seventy-five million years ago. With the development of newly grown legs, objects can now move independently and come back to us in a new form. One of my latest pieces, Knight,  features the juxtaposition of knight/dragon, protection/danger, good/evil. Knights were defenders of a cause, champions of the weak and vulnerable, epitomizing all that was good. By ridiculing a knight helmet, the artwork questions the meanings associated with it and invites us to reconsider our view on our values and what we regard as good and evil.
