“Sculpture in contemporary art is more of an open platform that lets one feel free to follow a procedure to achieve certain artistic process. My works, which I document on video, are sculptures simply because by accepting the three-dimensionality you have to accept everything that is happening all around. And in them there is an object or a person and a process"
