Since 2006 in Berlin. Large scale installation work, city research of transformed spaces and art in public space since 2010. Text and video work, participative art. Exhibited in solo and group shows in Germany and abroad. Working at the intersection between the off scene, like the 48 hours Neukölln or house projects, and established institutions, like the Martin-Gropius-Bau or Berlinale. Part of circles of fellows across disciplines, like the fellows & friends community of the Hertie Foundation. Former professional chess player.

Artist Statement

My work is process driven, meaning prior research fuels my installation making, covering architecture, a sense of place or narratives of places and of people. I work with mixed materials, sometimes found at the location, other times materials that we cannot fully control, like the wind. The complex intricate processes of the making lead eventually to strong visual components in their end results. Sometimes living sculptures, including plants, or breathing works, set in motion by the passer by, participative art pieces or documentaries, my projects highlight the potential of spaces (sometimes) hidden in front of our eyes. My installations re-integrate objects and places into the visible landscape morphology and re-define them.
