artist statemen

In my art I am concerned with movement, rhythm and action as form-generating processes and with recording patterns of movement as spatio-temporal phenomena.

In different materials, I explore how form evolves from movement.

For the last years I have focused on geological processes like earth rotation and continental drift as global sculptural phenomena. I am fascinated by the global and universal rhythms intrinsic to human experience as well as by he limits of human perception.

My artistic method is oriented on processes. It combines acts of drawing, installation and performance.

I usually work with clear experimental set-ups, which relate to a theme and / or a place. I choose a system of reference, create set-ups for actions and operate in the intermediate field of referential parameters.

Theoretical investigations always attend my practical work.
Artistic expeditions are a part of my working method.
