Artist statement

MULTIMEDIA WOMAN ARTIST WORKING WITH THE TOPICS OF BODY, SELF-PORTRAIT, GENDER, FEMINISM, SOCIETY AND FOUND FOOTAGE.

About me

„TECHNOLOGY IN THE VISUAL ARTS HAS TO SHOW, INVENT OR ANTICIPATE ITS OWN FUTURE IMPACT ON THE EARTH AND LIFE. ANYTHING ELSE IS ONLY EMBARRASSING DEMO OF TECHNOLOGY´S DEXTERITY.“

I USE VARIOUS MEDIA AND TECHNIQUES MOST OF ALL A VIDEO, A PHOTOGRAPHY AND A PERFORMANCE.
I AM INTERESTED IN SOCIETY´S CUSTOMS, RELATIONSHIPS, STEREOTYPES AND RULES.
I FIND HIDDEN MEANINGS IN A LANGUAGE AND I USE THE WORD PLAYS.
I GET MY INSPIRATION FROM EVERYWHERE. I PROCESS ALL INFORMATION FROM THE ENVIRONMENT OR EVENT BY FORM FOUND FOOTAGE. I WORK WITH THIS MATERIAL IN ITS PURE FORM OR I DISTURB ITS NATURAL SURROUNDS BY MY OWN INTERVENTION AND MAKE A NEW MEANING.
ARTWORKS OFTEN HAVE AN IRONICAL OVERTONE.
