STATEMENT
In my artistic practice I address history as well as different forms of history – storytelling. Topics like manipulation, power and mass in a sociopolitical sense form an important starting point for my work. I scrutinise concrete historical events, consult scientific and theoretical texts, collect artefacts of the respective times, research in a myriad of biographies. From this source material, I create fictional protagonists whom I use as means for the examination and analysis of my topics. I present my work in the form of videos, room installations and audio works. In my installations I employ theatrical devices, although the source materials are not fiction. That is not to say that the scenario is necessarily one of performer and audience. My installations generate uncertain spaces that have something in common with a poorly lit and neglected archival space as well as a theatre set.
