Process-oriented  works in public space, Installation and Video are the creative areas I am most interested in. My work I consider as kind of a research enterprise to question and understand the changing interrelations between man and the world.

The continuous fostering of my own and others` perception appears a red thread through my work  – a reflected perception considered as a grounding human resource for a responsible contribution to the society I am living in.

The subjects of my interest move between the delights and troubles of the public society context observed in a highly civilized environment, the relation between people, woman and man, between human beings and the world of animals, between order and disorder.

In test arrangements, I react artistically to questions that arise or to inconsistencies in my own and others’ lives, to innovations in different fields, to utopias – individual and collective ones.

Individual work as well as collaborations with others seem fundamental to me. My curiosity is part of a dialogue with a cultural diversity of points of view which are able to put one’s own image of the world into perspective in such a bracing way. 

Furthermore, an integral part of my work is teaching, which I consider to be a sculptural, creative process. My status I would  define as the one of a teaching person and the same time a notorious life-long student. It is all a matter of curiosity.
