ARTIST STATEMENT

I am interested in the absurdity of daily banalities. Things which make you wonder a little and thereby causing an amused „How?”. I understand my role as a contemporary artist as being a catalyst and mediator in-between unseen, hidden situations, objects and moments and those who overlook them in the whirlwind of everyday noise and distraction.

I work at the interface between performance art, installation and spatial design. I see installation and the design of space as an opportunity to create a playground in which prevailing socio-political concepts and laws become ineffective and thus alternative realities can be tried out and tested in a playful way. I am interested in how the composition and movement of bodies and objects in space creates a new temporality and a related simulacrum. I develop interactive and immersive performance formats, which invite the viewers to actively shape the course of the performance or to let it happen in the first place through their participation. I am interested in formats that function outside of the "white cube" and orient themselves in their aesthetics and subject matter to popular culture, are shaped by it and have the claim to influence it in turn.
