Artist Statement

My photographic works deal with the structures of function and appearance: I’m trying to speak the language of objects. Their factuality seems irreversible, but at the same time conceals our fear of the inevitable.

 

How is it that we created our environment and manipulated nature this way? Our fruitless attempts to control the power of nature reveal the desire for a controllable, malleable and arranged scenery.

 

I’m starting a dialogue with the viewer about contemporary landscapes. When capital slowly drips away, residues remain in the gutters, cracks and crawl spaces, which seem to take on new roles when they lose their function.

 

My photographs shift between wanting to control everything and the acceptance of what actually is. The relationship between the not-knowing, not comprehending and our continuing desire seems very important to me. 

 

Agitation in my head and unanswered questions do not fit in harmonious and controlled environments. Unanswered questions represent a need, and fuel my projects and correspond to desire. My photo series are full of chaos, not-knowing, impressions and questions, lead by an apparent makeability born in the mind, which however cannot be controlled.
