1985, Austria

Artist Statement

My work focuses mainly on conceptual photography as well as sculpture. Since 2016 I have introduced different mediums such as casting, mould making, woodwork and ceramics into my practice. I am concerned with subjects surrounding urban sociology showing the structures, processes, phenomenon, and problems that are part of urban life and human interactions with a special interest in shared memory and social and cultural aspects of life.

I classify objects into groups in order to appreciate their characteristics and reflect upon their narratives. Therefore repetition and the interconnections between object and subject play an important role in my practice. My work is characterized by an objective and conceptual line following clear structures.
