In my artistic work I explore the essence of light using photo- graphic experiments.
I examine the cause and effect of various light phenomena on photosensitive paper and thus approach the medium of light. A performative movement, an object or a combination of both is traced with various light sources and recorded on the two-dimensional carrier (a large format analogue photo paper).
The translation of the momentarytakes place within the framework of the analog photography process as a painterly and performative gesture. In this way, the hidden is given a photographic view, the ephemeral is fixed, whereby the potential of light as a medium is made visible. The transfer of performative gestures can be seen in the works as an experimental color composition. Individual series of works consist of intimate small formats or monumental paper scrolls up to 6m high and work with different approaches, e.g. some projects focus on the physicality of light traces, while others focus on the visualization of geometric folds and shapes.
Sometimes pinhole cameras are used in a performative matter - by attaching them to a dove (“Doo”) or by mailing them (“From Me/ To Me I & II). For the project “Glowing Attraction” the light of living organisms and its influence on the light-sensitive surface of the photo paper was recorded.
