Artist Statement
My artistic practice stems from 1970s feminist body art, especially from the American art scene with Hannah Wilke as the most important reference. It was the encounter with the early feminist art that I learned that any experience can be transformed into an artistic manifesto. It was also feminist theory, which led me to analyze power relations, both socially and in the private sphere.

My practice is always in dialogue with various forms of theoretical thinking, such as feminist theory, masculinity studies, trauma theory and art historical material.

I am eager to explore masculinity in a historical, social and cultural perspective - a special focus point is the negotiation between gender and traumatic experience.
