“In 2010, I suffered a traumatic injury in an accident. During the lengthy rehabilitation, I decided I did not want these injuries to define me. I started to equate the therapeutic recovery processes my body was going through to my artistic practice, and began using historic ways of mending objects as inspiration in my own work.”
