Installation artist, city researcher
Since 2006 in Berlin. 10 years + of work on space design and space creation. Mixed media installation work, city research and art in public space since 2010. Exhibited in solo and group shows in Germany and abroad. Part of circles of fellows across disciplines, like the fellows & friends community of the Hertie Foundation. Background in installation art and public policy. Former professional chess player.
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 multimedia and 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 work re-integrates objects and places into the visible landscape morphology and re-defines them.
