Based on my living environment, I am engaged in observing the changes in urban and rural structures. I am interested in photographic, artistic projects that require a long-term, intensive occupation. In my conceptual works realized so far, I combine different artistic and scientific working practices and methods: photographic, documentary, installation strategies, interviews, long-term observations of places, as well as the appropriation and use of various archive materials. They culminate in space-related exhibition presentations. The claim of my artistic work thus consists in a complexity that combines biographical, social and theoretical aspects and is visibly reflected in the result of the work.
