the climatechanger

On my first trip to iceland with my twin sister heidi, we circumnavigated the island. Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, lies in the south.

Thinking-Search/Addiction-Identity The sculpture “The Thinker” in the river is the result of a multi-layeredconceptually elaborated idea.I did this work exactly 10 years ago and it was by no means my intention to implementRodin’s ingenious masterpiece “The Thinker” lightly and, as it might seem, sarcastically.Rodin’s original sculpture is in the upper part of his monumental work […]

leaves in the wind

At the end of March 2020 I had mounted 36 masks on the brunches of a tree next to the road. These masks were part of an object from 1999 with the title “Be at home, look out”, where they were mounted on an old 6-part window. Object “sei zuhaus, schau hinaus” 1999/ old window/36 […]

Death Doll

To die Inhale… Exhale… The seduced mind is turned to the light, in search of knowledge, but mainly turned away from the impotence of transience and the profound depth of infinite nothing with which every breath connects us.Our physical appearance has grown entirely from the resources of this planet and for the duration of this […]

Science is a principle that arises from the natural curiosity to explore its habitat from the logical original reason. Every living being is introduced into the world through the nature of free play. Of course, everything does not have to be experienced every time anew, because the genetic information helps to transmit memories on a […]

But for me it is not about gender acting in this figur, because sometimes this goddess is described as […]
