«I get inspired by our human urge to create a mythology, a system of the chaos that exists between nature and culture.
My films is a combination between planned fiction and documentation of performance. The scenes have been planned in advance but many of the final movements and actions in front of the camera is partially improvised. In this way the narrative can also change during the process. It adds the extra playfulness I'm looking for.»
