What is it about your studio space that inspires you?
Combinations, often contradictory ones, are what inspire me the most. I believe in constant transformation and am afraid of anything static. So I work in two places: one studio is clean, warm and inside my home; the other is outside, self-built in a horse barn, dirty and surrounded by trees.
What is your favourite material to work with? How has your use of it evolved throughout your practice?
Metal in combination with loam. The materials I chose are powerful transmitters of movment and energy. Loam - one of our oldest building materials- is a time-capsule that visualizes transformation.
What themes do you pursue?
Paradoxes: the spiritual & the minimal, the individual & the group, competition & zen, nature & architecture, animus & anima and the past beside the future. It is crucial to me to emphasize paradoxes in times where populism and simplifications are king. I encourage to focus on what unites instead of seperates us, besides all differences.
What advice has had the biggest impact on your career?
Focus with lasersharp energy then let it go
