Artist Statement
Non-linear Narrations Forms cut out from paper, fragments of human bodies painted with oil paint and emulsions, soaked and scratched, are then correlated as expansive installations and mounted according to the layout of the space. Based on different associations, contents and meanings they commit themselves to new relationships with each other. Personal memory images, dreams, nightmares, realities appear as a non-linear narration without beginning or end in a state of latent change. Some elements are reused again, altered and correlated in a new way. Cutting out is a process which coalesces with painting and drawing and allows the two dimensional structure of the paper to be transcended. I give the paper the form of a body, apply it like a relief, as if extracted from a fresco, onto the wall and thereby the surfaces melt into one another. Because of the composition the figures are shown in their surreal or real condition: dreamlike or down-to-earth, heavenly or earthly, in a close dialogue with the wall as universe. Paper and wall turn into "skin". Often I look for places whose complexion of the walls and atmosphere attracts me, where surfaces are battered, worn out, used, where one notices that time has passed. Then, by means of painting and by including found deficiencies, the walls are mimetically metamorphosed into the paper. The shapes which develop are an alchemy of chance and precision. I convert the stains on not yet renovated walls into creatures. A patina on the wall forms into which I mount the paper body parts. Thus stains preserve their original fleetingness and I stop when they are still breathing. This approach is like the archaeology of my own embedded images. In the process of doing the installation I feel the challenge to capture one instant, one moment, which can never again be repeated exactly this way and which lives on its cursoriness and I often have feelings of disappearing and being vulnerable. Often I experience the trimming with the cutter like an injury and simultaneously like a touch. I wish that the viewer, standing in the middle of the space, will intuitively find his way and experience physicality.
