a r t i s t`s s t a t e m e n t
The aim of my artistic work is to demonstrate, to reflect and to question societal, cultural and aesthetical patterns of reception. A conceptual approach, the process of deformation, de- and recontextualizing as well as a transmedial and transdisciplinary conception and the focus on theoretical background constitute the framing conditions of my artistic practice.
