My work has developed from a focus on objects (life-sized sculptures until 1994), to solo performances (until 2003), to site-specific collaborative projects (since 2003), which primarily deal with cultural phenomena and narratives. I like to take idiosyncratic stories, societal processes or subjects of scholarly research and playfully transform them into tangible allegories.
I'm especially interested in finding - or inventing - unexpected connections, and investigating narrative structures. Each new work begins with a fresh conceptual approach, as I intentionally integrate local resources into my artistic process, especially the people I meet on site.
Working with participants who are mostly non-artists can be complex and challenging, yet highly enjoyable. I try to safeguard the energy that results from these interactions and to use it to create convincing formats. This calls for both artistic direction and social skills.
In addition to performance, I usually use photography, video and installation in my work. Occasionally I'll use drawings, texts and handmade objects in the installations.
