Printed and always identical. The principle of technical reproducibility makes it possible. In this project, my catalog “Name” becomes the blank, the starting material. The end becomes the beginning of entirely new ideas. The brochure comprising illustrations of bodies becomes the body, upon which one can encroach, which can be injured, decorated and designed. Real nudes, which, in this format, turn the copy into a work of its own. Catalog is composed of various sub-projects. Skulp / Sketchbook / Ink / Explode (work in progress)
Scratching, burning, staining. Skin as medium of alteration. The catalog as sculpture. My catalog “Name” from 2016 depicts partial excerpts of the human body. As a block of paper, in this work it is the starting material for my sculptural interventions. Deeper-lying layers are touched by means of burning and abrading. Eyes move through gaps or disappear entirely. Exposed deep structures and superficialscratch marks open the closed system Body. The two-dimensional image becomes a three-dimensional structure. The associative space is expanded into the depth. Husk-like, mutilated, shot. These encroachments appear as an attack on human intactness and, alongside the spatial, lend the image a temporal dimension. A story arises, which, anchored spatially in the brochure, reflects the aggression of the intervention.
In the project UX I combine images that I save on my external hard drives from different contexts. Images that have become my digital memory. A memory which I like to rely on during the work process. I search in it the way I search in my own memories. The recombining of various images is a central element of some of my works. Which motif interacts with another, and through which form of activation two motifs can be woven with one another and hence into one, so that they enhance each other. Reach a plane that does not narrate the obvious, but turns the hidden, the disturbing, into an experience. Causes unrest, which allows the beholder to recognize, but not disambiguate, the unknown.
In the series "WHAT IF?" the order of the existing series „Stops“ is broken. The pictures of the series are dismembered, demolished and remounted. The emerging spaces show a reality whose order of things is close to chaos. As if a whirlwind had swept over the images and rearranged the elements according to their own logic. The translucent paper at the cracks of some images, reinforces the fragmentary character of the work.
