As an artist who likes to move a lot of material short, intense pictorial poems were created. The topic of a failed romantic relationship due to language barriers has left a helplessness. Two voices - my German voice with the resulting poem and an English personal interpretation of Keren Shalev are interwoven. The form of synchronicity creates disharmony and harmony. Duplications of the smallest sounds and linguistic images through a rational or emotional perception and understanding lead to a density of information and acoustic impressions, which allows a large space for personal associations. The poem, which does not result in a specific goal of knowledge, thus becomes a document, an inner state of overburdening and frustration with a poetic potential that uses reality only piecemeal.
For the summer festival "Lost Time" NK ^ 2 with
Mirjam Dorsch, Katharina Kamph, Qing Lu, Mario Margani, Sabrina Schieke, Huatschao Chen and guests,
find in a shared work space of three months activities and actions take place in the interspace of conceptual and applied art and so on look at aesthetic, craft and social ideas from a more distant field.
The potential of this inclusive approach, which refers to the place, the artists of the
"n-life" group and the intuitive idea and implementation lies in the creation of new reception possibilities and their complexity sensory perceptual phenomena in a life like environment.
My contribution to the exhibition, which includes transformation with three textile objects, a textile wax object and a wax object (see article below), a performance witch circle (see article below) and a poetry performance to be experienced with
Keren Shalev at the summer festival not only have materials been used which have a very close relation to everyday culture, but above all questions have been asked about the limits of art, through the offering of workshops by the respective actors of "n-life". Sewing stations, cooking and kombucha making, Chinese characters painting were both installations and possibilities to expose the origin of aestheticized handling down to their roots. Performances and dance have resulted in a complex and multi-layered summer festival, which can be invited to a traveling festival contribution by its scope and flexibility.
(also tea mushroom

; botanical name Medusomyces gisevii
) is a fermented
, slightly alcoholic
, lightly effervescent
, sweetened black
or green tea
drink commonly intended as a functional beverage
for its supposed health benefits. Sometimes the beverage is called kombucha tea
to distinguish it from the culture of bacteria
Juice, spices, or other flavorings are often added to enhance the taste of the beverage. The exact origins of kombucha are not known.
It is thought to have originated in the area of Northeastern China
, and was traditionally consumed there, but it was in Russia
and eastern Europe
Kombucha is now homebrewed
globally, and also bottled and sold commercially by various companies.
a ceramic cup with integrated plate goes a round

like fungi grows in circles they integrate e.g. stones in there perimeter
if it comes in between we also focus on the space between.
and as we pass the earth-shaped cup- we also might be aware of
stars who did not collapse into black holes.
This work consists of a cardboard display with photo prints of a Venetian Madonna with adult Christ child in his arms and the crucifix from the Sistine Chapel after restoration in Rome.A beeswax candle cast at the same angle could be lit. After Motto holds twice better, one can turn with the expression of a desire equal to two religious power holders at the same time.This participatory work made spiritual concepts: people bearers of holiness, for example Prophets, Objective Self, communication with a Higher Self, etc. Literally tangible, and transferable.
The mold of the candle are individual wooden panels that define the time frame with the remaining wax residues until the candle has become dimensionally stable.
