I perceive the things I represent, everything is actually already there. It’s just that reality is so fast and changeable that I find it impossible to hold on to a holistic perception of reality. So, in my work, I focus on the principle of deconstruction and construction.
When I reflect, this principle is much more comprehensive for me and not only immanent to the work.
I extract, fragment and assemble – in thought, with the eyes, the hands, language. We could talk about theories of perception at this point. There are no self-contained systems in reality, there are only parts and composite partial realities, and these are neither universally valid nor stable.
When I describe how I work, my artistic action comes closest to thinking. The thoughts and images in my head are free to move in all directions, they shove themselves over each other and thus constantly link up to form new ideas. That means a great deal of freedom. I play with parts of reality. Thus, my work is characterised by a complex combinatorics of very different views of space as well as layers of space in the past years as a whole.
