“I stopped painting, because contemporary art has nothing to do with the individual artist.”
ARTIST, DJ, WRITER
Who are you? What do you do?
I see myself as an artist in multiple fields.
I am mostly interested in working with space, spacial references and social spaces. After 10 years working as a painter I focused on working with the space between the object and the observer of the object and the transmission in an art space. So I started building up installations and transporting the painting to the surrounding. My researches about space are constantly expanding and since two years now I am mostly working with the auditive space. Basically it means I am transporting information into sounds and combine them with other works by myself or other artists.
Besides that I am writing on my first novel about art, music and my social life.
Where are you from?
Your style in 3 words?
eclectic, conceptual, spacial
Your weakness? Your strength?
material freedom and material freedom
What makes you different?
I stopped painting, because contemporary art has nothing to do with the individual artist. The artwork stands for itself. Painting only lives through the cosmos of the painter, which is not interesting for me and the reason why I started to work in several fields. It is the possibility to open up my ideas and use the cosmos of my social surrounding instead of revolving around myself.
When did you decide to become an artist?
I applied for an art school for the first time when i was 14, but I arrived late to the audition, so I decided to finish regular school first. At the age of 18 I started to study art in Leipzig, then Karlsruhe and Berlin.
What do you find most fascinating about your work?
Endless possibilities and combinations of information, materials, colours and sounds.
A few words about your favourite creation?
My favourite work is ‘theoretisches Kling Klong’ which is a sound portrait of a person or a piece.
I use text information of curators/other artists/writers/scientists and convert them into sounds and produce some sort of a new language and a different opportunity to re-expierence information.

2017: Where are we going?
We already went to Athens and Kassel (Documenta), Venice (Biennale), Münster (Münster Skulpturen Projekte – which I liked the most btw)…. so we should stay in Berlin and go in parks and meet friends and feel free.
