My work is an absurdistic visualisation, based on narcissistic relationships. Starting in the world of cycling, I transform a personal story into something filled with humour and healing. Through storytelling I play with aspects of my own life and elements from, for example, cycling gear. I show the agony of the victim in a narcissistic relationship in an absurd way through knitting works, prints, transformations and bicycle parts through moving image.

“Nagem, a passionate young woman who is full of life. In her cycling paradise she gives love and effort to achieve her goal. Either way, she's going to have the race of her life. She will complete several rounds on an indoor cycling track. During that journey, uncertainties play an increasingly important role, which visibly leads to frustration and anger.” A selection from the short fashion film that was made in response to the collection The Cluster B Effect. A film that will move you and put a new perspective on narcissism with performance and fashion.
"In my graduation project, I visualise a personal trauma with surrealistic and humoristic features."
I collaborated with a graphic artist (James Whistler) to visualise words and slogans with a narcissistic output. The Dutch words find a way to project nonsense and embracing the words that are being shouted at you.
