Where sticky notes become a monument and bookmark ribbons a living waterfall, where the 'good' dissolves into the 'even better' and small German flags form a front that emits an annoying cacophony of anthems, you are standing in the middle of the world of thought of the conceptual artist Frenzy Höhne, who knows best how to develop significant images of our contemporary society from everyday things in a thoroughly humorous, sensitive and very apt way. The artist astutely makes use of a variety of media techniques; develops objects, space-related sculptures and sound installations, photographs, graphics and drawings that address the values and needs of our communal life in a multi-layered way. Thus crocheted threads combine to form the image of a bleeding flag, the advertising slogans of large chain shops give rise to queues in front of small grocers and the plinth of art itself complains; I am 'Only for a short time'.

Her ambiguous works and humorously, sometimes ironically connoted set pieces of our everyday life create critical questions about the world of individual striving that surrounds us and the never-ending profit optimisation of our time. Frenzy Höhne's complex works are pointed, enigmatic and remarkably direct at the same time; in addition to their technical brilliance, they have a distinctly appealing and integrative character.
