Artistic statement “I am interested in the way cultural myths are produced and assimilated either as part of a strategy for manipulation and power exertion or as part of a search for identity and certainty. From religion and fairy tales to publicity, social behaviour, clichés, gender roles, sex and politics, the myth is created, spread and consumed until it slowly becomes routine.“
