The Bierumer School, a space for truly free and independent thinking and perception, for contemplation, for art that corresponds to the reality of the earthly elements, the ferocity of fire, the hard compactness of the earth, the heavingly mirroring of the sea, cleansed of barnacles and seaweed, cleansed of the unimaginative phantom of the mass media pouring over us every day, prefabricated politics and opinions, monetaire romantics and other restrictions, for an art beyond delicate expressions of would-be artists producing for the latrine only.
Space for an art that poses questions that do not always rely on an answer, for the not directly identifiable, for inner silence, beyond language, self seeing and thinking, knowing that the image is not always the mantle of the word, but is capable of reaching into deeper knowledge.
A space for experiment, for developing innovative concepts, at the same time attention for making the here and now and the past habitable again.
"Es gibt so viele Morgenröten, die noch nicht geleuchted haben". [Nietzsche]
I am interested in the absurdity of daily banalities. Things which make you wonder a little and thereby causing an amused "How?".
I understand my role as a contemporary artist as being a catalyst and mediator in-between unseen,
hidden situations, objects and moments and those who overlook them in the whirlwind of everyday noise and distraction.
In my current work and research I am interested in the effect of performance arts on the viewer and the possibility of
establishing an interactive exchange of ideas and experiences in-between the artist and the observer. In that I am
experimenting with the body as material and I am aiming at finding a language of movement which is universally understandable
on an intellectual but more importantly on an emotional level.
