Artistic statement

The idea, the thought, the draft are the bases for the execution of my artwork. Ideas come from everyday life situations, social and cultural atmospheres. Then the idea expresses itself in the performances and installation art. As well as this, I use the body as a means of expression.

The artistic idea is expressed using the body alone, as part of the installation and within the context of an audience.

The subjects I deal with are time, movement, space, material, body, action/interaction. I try to create works of art that leave for the viewer, free space for associations and new possibilities. I take a special situation from everyday life and without illustrating this one for one; I place it into a new context.

I aim to create art where all of the elements are connected together to form a whole work of art ( Gesamtkunstwerk)
