statement

In my artistic practice I explore the relationship between man and object in the contemporary world.
My starting point is Performance Art, I am interested in the performativity of material – matter we usually consider to be dead; in the performativity of objects, their very own ability to communicate with each other and with people, to produce meaning and to create their own networks. For me, things are fluid, their meaning flows in many different directions, strands of meaning intertwine, only to dissolve again. I explore the performative nature of matter and material itself.
My work is a meditation on agency in our Anthropocene times.

My performative installations are process-like landscapes. They serve to set processes in motion that take on a life of their own: objects and matter perform with me, in front of me, without me. The material gives way or hardens, the installation grows, shrinks, breathes in a changing rhythm. The objects bring out their inner qualities, their surfaces break up and allow deep vibrations to emerge. They become independent performers, idiosyncratic, arbitrary, unpredictable.

My work challenges the audience through an aesthetic experience and aims to facilitate the dialog and exchange with forms of otherness, strangeness.
