Residence 2022

In May 2022, the three-year, Franco-German exchange project ‘Residence Line – Body and Landscape’ with the French artist Muriel Valat-B will continue in Berlin. In winter 2021, I was an artist in residence of Calce Culture Contemporaine in Planèzes, southern France, for four weeks as part of this project and worked on the theme of body and landscape and the strong and idiosyncratic wind in the region. In addition to the work residencies, ‘Residence Linie’ is linked to exhibitions in France and Germany in 2023.

Artist Statement

I am fascinated by geological processes and how little we perceive the earth movements in which we are unavoidably implicated.

My research involves tracing this activity.

I want to understand the interaction of time and space:
the activity as a whole, how it comes about, and me in my human measure.

My artistic approach is process oriented.
It combines drawing, sculpture, installation, and performance.

My practical work is accompanied by theoretical discourse.
Artistic expeditions and fieldwork represent a significant part of my work process.

Projects

fieldwork

Many of my works have been created in fieldwork in recent years. In this blog you can find impressions from working residencies in the Icelandic East Fjords and on the Reykjanes Peninsula, in the Spanish High Pyrenees and in Northern Norway as well as topics related to these stays.

einszueins

In my project onetoone – Art at the Røyal Bakery, I present and mediate contemporary art within the context of everyday life in Berlin. Three times a year, I invite artists to create a wall piece at the Røyal Bakery. During the exhibition, the artists barter their work for a daily supply of bread.
