Samla Prayer Mill
Installation, Moscow State University, Biological Station, Zvenigorod, Russia, 2013
Ice is water frozen into a solid state. It can appear transparent or opaque bluish-white color, depending on the presence of impurities or air inclusions. The addition of other materials such as printed paper may further alter its appearance. In this case the ice was frozen into frames for drawings, exhibited in a former biological laboratory. For a short period of time the transient objects represent an excerpt of history, a frozen gallery of archaeological remains.
Performative installation, part of "Hit the Beat 2013", Windhoek, Namibia, 2013
Letters as sculptures, made from waste materials like cardboard boxes, leftovers of wall paint and old newspapers. A group of 14 -15 year old kids built large size letters. They are shown to the public as symbols of hopes, dreams, friendship and identity.
A truck ride through the city of Windhoek with stops at important landmarks and buildings gives them the opportunity to compose "words" at various public places. They change the combinations of their sculptures every moment and then remove them and arrange everything in a new location with a different message.
Installation, NCCA Art Residence Kronstadt, Russia, 2013
17 inhabitants of Kronstadt, aged between 12 and 80 years, told me about important spots, historical facts and myths about their home town. Following them I created a web of drawings which emerged from my personal imagination about everything I was told. These sketches were connected to a geographical image of the island of Kotlin as well as they were connected to each other. It is an image of my personal view on Kronstadt. The view of a foreigner who is amazed about everything that seems normal to locals. And who immediately fell under the spell of this extraordinary place.
