Interdisciplinary Performance Artist
My ideas have little respect for genres, categories or divisions. This offers me
me a certain freedom, which is not only easy to handle. Since my diploma at the
HfG Offenbach - the video performance How to Graduate from Art School -
I understand my art as a tool for emancipation, not only from the socially
socially anchored restrictions that come with "being a woman",
but also from the rules and expectations of the art market.
The body is my central medium, but not the only one I use. In addition to performances, I use drawings, photographs or - in collaboration with the media collective Humatic - video installations to ask questions about the relationship between the body and the medium that presents it. I live in the quiet area of Brandenburg near Berlin.
My most important teacher is the risk of being unmasked in front of people and standing for whatever may be the outcome of what you are creating. This applies to both my solo performances and as well as stagings with various performers.
As different as the forms of my work may evolve, the body is often found close to the edge where movement meets sculpture. Here I explore the body as a powerful and subtle medium of creation and perception. A medium that shapes reality and the space around it, which determines how we perceive the world and how we are perceived.
Another motif that appears in my work is performative methods for unlearning useless knowledge. I am convinced that one can counteract the fear, the confusion and the trauma of this chaotic world best by listening to your own body and reading other bodies.
My work may be read as a promise to open the eyes, sharpen the sensibility, and playfully open up new ways of reading the absurdities of everyday life together with my audience. In order to challenge everyday perception, I am looking for opportunities to present my works in places where art is not initially expected.
