Performance and Installation
Model, Plaster, Video

The performance demonstrates the construction of a sculpture, while artwork, artist and model are not located precisely. Their positions change, overlay and disappear mutually. The pieces of circumstantial evidence rest within an installation and video.

Installation
Mixed Media

The installation with a framed slogan “I show nothing that´s at least something, everybody has already seen” oscillates around a dubious thought and occupies suspicion and piece of circumstantial evidence: What does it mean, when an occupation leaves scarcely or no traces, if there is no work distinctly visible?
A white wall is treated again and again with white colour. Underneath references to the occurrence with uncertain origin are left. There is only a delicate limiting of space action.

Performative sculpture / 1,5 tons of clay


One enters into a 30 square metre floor space with an extended sculpture of damp clay. Going in, everybody distorts and moves the piece while leaving impressions. These pieces of circumstantial evidence are references to his presence, whereas the left empty prints reveal his absence.
The interaction is at the same time a process of origin in the work. One steps into the sculpture for closer examination. This moment of distortion by contact and confrontation needs the observer, he becomes part of the artwork. So he can choose how to come close: with or without shoes, straight ahead or in a while.
