about me

The pleasure of putting things next to each other.

And watching.

I’m an artist based in Stuttgart, Germany. Mainly, I work with photographic means, complemented by sculptures and language.

I marvel at nature. I want to show what I cannot grasp. Beauty as the ultimate acceptance of transience.

Blossoming. Being vulnerable. Passing away.

Sometimes I destroy things. Porcelain. Crystal. To let something new emerge.
