Living in a material world (...) 

Dealing with the complexity of human experience and perception is of central importance to my work, for example questions about desire, meaningfulness and alienation. I see the world as a „built and constructed world“ and my sculptures are an expression of what has developed and consolidated in the course  of modernization.

“The private and the public are connected.”

            Private Room is based on set pieces of a schematic mobilar. The basic elements use are installed in situ, covering the floor, taking up space, creating space dividing and delimiting in situ. The interest is focused on the nature of the materials.

        In ambivalence, surfaces bear witness to their material character, while at other points they conceal or even manipulate it in other places: Are they sanded, polished, filed, coated, shaped, lacquered, laminated, protected, optimised or untreated? Decisions commonly made between comfort and purpose. Anti-scratch, anti-grease or anti-scratch, anti-grease or anti-soiling coatings, wear and tear, retouching and protective coatings are part of – and at the same time antithesis of the history of the object. The private and the public are connected.
