About The Artwork

Is it too private to reveal who my father's lover who was before he met my mother? I found this photo in hidden papers – it is the photo of my father's first love. It wasn't meant to be seen by the family, because it wasn't meant to be gossiped over. No one likes to see a alternate present where one is not present. What is more taboo in ones family history than the photo of a person who could’ve been part of the family, but was not. Just like the silver that is badly stabilized in this monochrome print causes the photograph to fade over 40 years, so does the memory of this woman evaporate from our family. I open her up, unwrap her presence to give her a second chance.

I always work with the place where my work activity is anchored. It is the space itself that echoes the subject and gives a fertile ground for creation. Found materials such as web data, objects, sounds, written sentences or video recordings play a major role in the process of defining the physical shape of the subject – nevertheless they don’t necessarily have to be included in the final work. In my art practice things often become transmutations of themselves and serve a different meaning by provoking certain associations of geopolitical or scientific character. The relation of things (rather than objects) to space form in my opinion a living network of interconnected actors who are in a constant move and thus define the shape of the world we live in. Aesthetics, politics and mass media mix with dumped furniture, excess web data and diseases to become a language of thought of the New. My strategy implies an endless reformulating of things in space – a final structure is impossible because of the innumerable mutations that occur in a gathering like the so called 'art work'. I treat my pieces more like renderings of a state in a given time rather than something final.
