Artist Statement

My work is concerned with procedures of perception and identification. Working like tools for its realisation, frequently different media are used, in order to provide a full palette of processing impressions and cognition. Drawings, videos, objects and photos function (such as organs in a body) seperately but as part of the whole.

The motives are diverse, yet stringent. Consistently invented worlds appear – paradoxically layered and interlaced surfaces form an unreal space, a backdrop, a frontage masquerade.

Narrative Elmente acceded to the plan, never with a coherent narration, but as a rudimentary alignment of episodes. The shown persons, characters and objects behave autistically and introverted, and take up a engrossed, escapistic status, distanced to reality.

Mired in a network of human ambivalence our perception habits get repealed or become farcical. The reality as we know it mutates to a construct of ideas, our life turns out as an illusion of manifested projection.
