“Fragile Egos” is a sound research with words and compositions about the most vulnerable part of the human animal: the fragility of its ego.
The moment the ego gets hurt and how it deals with this pain, feels fear and is in need to self protect and how it becomes vicious because of all that.
The following are stories and situations, that talk about facing intimidation, irritation and the need for validation. With compositions, spoken word, images and objects I stage those dynamics, processes and conflicts

This is a restaurant
‘This is a restaurant’ is a work in progress, a research about hypothetical desires, suggestive needs, imagined tenderness and traitorous wishes that offer also dissatisfaction. This comes from the bottom of a waiters heart that can’t wait to wait on you, serve your ear and secure the service, free of charge once again (free entrance)
a collaboration with wonderful artist and writer Maria Lepistö.
a sound exhibition with transducers set up for the street art festival ‘sorry, not sorry’ in Gent in September 2019, BE.
this installation was set up on a house boat that used to be an old cargo ship, a beautiful creature with many stories. the composition is an imagination of how all its peculiarities may and do sound. the visuals are the roots it used to travel up and down the veins of Europe.
adjusted for listening on headphones.

We dig, gather, create in different places of the world and bring our individual artistic findings to a big potlatch of the senses whenever we P U L S E.
