I am an artist working in the form of performative installations as well as with sculptures, machines and expanded drawings. Trained both in traditional sculpture, drawing and in electronic arts, I aim to find and repurpose experimental and time-based media/materiality, like light, sound and kinetics, together with so-called traditional media/materiality towards farther thinking investigations. My practice unfolds through exploring the peripheral and fringe areas of my discipline and its media together with maintaining an active inter- and transdisciplinary dialogue.
Central themes within my artistic investigations are the inextricable relation between the body and the world, between perception and the perceived, between sensing and sense-making. I am struck and fascinated by the discontinuities in the perception of reality and the power of sub/liminal phenomena and processes which strongly inform how we feel and think with our body/minds and subsequently how we act. Therefore, I explore how we/humans orient and self-position ourselves in the world. For me, this inevitably leads to a fundamental and poetic confrontation with what is given and what eludes itself, with technologies, with control and loss.
A multi-sensorial listening and drawing practice and the play with materiality and thresholds of perception are pivotal elements of my work. I use machines as media and instruments for conducting inquiries with regards to the world. They are subtle perceptual machines. Their task is to record and to register, to make impulses perceivable in order to allow us to engage in a discussion about our experience of a jointly shared world.
