Description

I try to create an absurd, poetic reality that radiates an atmospheric mystery. I am moving between reality and fiction, between present and reminiscence. Everyday motives are deconstructed and recombined again with each other. My works have surrealistic appearance but I realize my image ideas with the rationality of a set designer, who always has the viewer’s perception in mind. The compositional decisions are taken quite soberly and rationally. The process of mounting is comparable for me to a “mise-en-scène” in the theatre, or to the rhyming of a poem. I try to create an absurd, poetic reality. It’s like putting poetry on stage. I use different motives from everyday life, art, history or from my imagination which get deconstructed and recombined again with each other. This creates new meanings and connections between things that often seem incomprehensible or irrational. The result of this is usually absurd, ambiguous dream images which have a self-contained logic. This new arrangement of things means for me an absolute poetry. It expresses itself by incoherence, acausality and discontinuity.
