ABOUT

Welcome to my website! Here, you'll find background information about me, what drives me, where I hang out, and how I work. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact me. I'm open to collaborations, so if you have an idea or similar interests, please don't hesitate to reach out.

ARTIST STATEMENT 2024

In my artistic practice, I merge artistic and scientific methods to explore the interactions between cities, spaces, and human bodies. I engage with architecture, urban environments, and public spaces, focusing particularly on the impact of migrant and touristic spaces on their immediate surroundings, as well as the diverse cultural perceptions of architecture.

The human body plays a central role in my research, especially concerning topics such as mediation, trauma therapy, and neuroscience. I view the body as a pivotal actor reflecting complex social and cultural processes.

Collaborations are a vital component of my artistic research, as I believe it is crucial to incorporate diverse perspectives. This is achieved through qualitative interviews and participatory projects, creating collective moments and space for shared reflection.

I employ a variety of tools and methods in my research, including qualitative interviews, cinematic data collection, mental mapping, cartography, and notation. The outcomes of my research materialize in a range of artistic media such as painting, installations, video projections, collages, and performances.

I perceive artistic research as a systematic examination and exploration of questions, themes, or concepts within the artistic process itself. The focus is on considering the artistic process as a form of research to reflect on ideas through the use of different methods, including experimental processes, theoretical reflection, artistic interventions, and critical discussions.

ARTIST BIO 2024

 

I studied architecture at the Technical University of Berlin and art with a specific focus on spatial strategies at the Weißensee School of Art also in Berlin. Parallel to my studies, I worked for renowned artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Jorinde Voigt and Jeppe Hein. After completing my studies, I taught visual arts at the Institute of Architecture at the TU Berlin 2010-2015. As a visiting professor at RISEBA in Riga, Latvia, she taught courses on artistic methods in planning in 2013.

Over the years, I have been fortunate to receive several grants, including one in 2011 for an artist exchange program through the Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations. Additionally, I was awarded scholarships for artist residencies in Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and Riga in 2011 and 2013 and Muscat / Oman in 2017 by the Goethe-Institut. Since 2011, I have had the privilege of exhibiting my works worldwide, most recently in Los Angeles, New York and Tenerife, and I am delighted to have sold my pieces to collectors in cities such as Riga, Zurich, Breda, Rotterdam, Muscat, and Berlin.

 

In addition to my own artistic research work as a freelance artist, I also was part of the Collaborative Research Center 1265 "RE-FIGURATION OF SPACES" at the Technical University Berlin from 2018-2024. 

Since 2016 I am running together with Lisa Gatzke, Annsofie Jonsson, Håkan Jonsson and Felicia Scheuerecker the project space STUDIO BAUSTELLE.
