and we extend our warmest congratulations to:
Recipient of the Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Art Award 2017
In my works, sound and/or noise are always present – as a tool to shape spaces and shapes, as a language to describe things, as a research subject to study human perception but also social and cultural conditions, and as an instrument for penetrating and influencing the fragile materials and bodies surrounding us, not just metaphorically.
In my work I appropriate found text, concepts and pop culture phenomena to direct my own working process. The resulting self-reflective, multi-layered sculptures propose a bridge between textual and visual languages and investigate gestures of three-dimensionality and reproduction as well as the notion of the original.
