Borderlands stems from a conceptual context I’ve been immersed into since 2014 when doing my Masters project. In this context themes like ecology in its extended version (mental, social, environmental) and the anthroposcene has paired with a longtime interest in the human psyche and its changes all way back from prehistoric times until the neoliberal now. The borderlands of civilization – often unnoticed raw industrial outskirts between city and land – has become a point of departure. Especially the torned, undefinable fragments I’ve found in such spaces. These excrements, left like everlasting, post-apocalyptic fossils of our current era, appear as if extracted from a collective unconscious against a backdrop of rural areas deprived of their actual value.
This interest takes shape mainly into spatial installations with sound, oil paintings and accents of sculptures, performance and text.
