Artist Statement 

 

 

My artistic work is a playful and poetic investigation into the relation between sign, image and idea, and into the fundamental question of the nature of images and how an image comes into being. I examine existing things and conventions, connotations and functions for their potential meanings, their aesthetic appearances and their cultural attributions. This is to explore hidden connections between things within different contexts and constellations, as well as our relation to them.

In doing so I use different media – drawing, photography, video, sculpture, performance – that I arrange into site-adapted installations by means of montage and collage.

The unfolding shifts of meaning can be perceived as a variable and complex structure and as a sum of their specific combination. 

My work is in constant flux and gets its life from its immediacy and its openness towards the perception of the viewers.
