Artistic Research

The basis of my research is the ethnographic and anthropological conditions of culture, concluding the political and social settings as well as the resulting questions of presentation and representation in art. For myself, I cannot and will not claim any style. Each precisely formed question demands its own medium and shows itself in this light. The medial spectrum ranges from painting, sculpture, installation and bibliophile books to art projects and beyond to action art and performance art. The spectrum is so broad that I find myself more than suspended in it.
