I use song titles as names for my exhibits or work: „Sounds of silence“, „Bonny and Clyde“ by Serge Gainsbourg, or „Secret Garden“ by Madonna are examples of this. Also, Felix Pawlas, Karin Missy Paule and I were in a band that called itself „Project Chanson“. We covered songs that touched me deeply and we had a few concerts.
