about 

»In my works I refer to spaces and places. My works represent a form of marking that reflects personal perception and staying on site.

The unifying element of my submitted works is that they disappear completely after a fixed period of time, without any exhibitable objects remaining as testimonies of the action. The temporary character of these interventions focuses on the moment when all aspects fit and cannot be repeated. As a consequence, the documentation remains and the non-documentable are the personal experiences.


In recent years, photography has increasingly become the means of my representation. In the work »borders« I use it exclusively as a medium for documentation. In the portraits of a landscape, it becomes the medium for investigating recurring formal references such as the horizontal and vertical. My  work »tabula rasa« uses photography as a medium of reflection.«
