Statement

In my multidisciplinary practice, I focus on our social and political perception of the human body. In our performance-oriented society, there is a growing tendency towards objectification, which encodes the body as an arbitrarily manipulable mass. We can do something with our body, shape it or manipulate it. Today it seems omnipresent, permeable and somehow surmountable and increasingly resembles a number of possibilities. In my cross-media work, I no longer understand the body as a whole, but fragmented or manipulated. Many of my projects deal with the fragmentary body, transience, gender, posthumanism and the traditional idea of our body image in the digital age. For this I use various media such as installations, videos, photographs, sculptures or computer-controlled technologies.
