I frequently collect things until I know what to do with them and create regardless visual adventures. I am trained in advertising but the conditions of agencies didn’t fulfill my expectations. Imagination and reality have little in common. Therefore, currently, I live and work in Weimar, Germany and pursue Masters of Fine Arts in Media Art and Design programme. In my work, I focus on themes such as; the self, visual traditions, the popular taste and the non-sense. By doing so, I produce photography, video, performances, printed matter and spatial works following different techniques.
And I'm a compulsive sharer.
"Open Studio/IN PROGRESS" (2015, Conceptual research)
“If I was an artist and I was in the studio, then whatever I was doing in the studio must be art. At this point art became more of an activity and less of a product.”
Bruce Nauman, contemporary artist
(1966, upon his graduation)
My studio is located in Mariensstrasse 9, 3rd floor, in room 206.
The empty room in M9 is taken by me as a master student currently working on my master thesis as of four months ago. My master thesis, IN PROGRESS / Curating the self deals with exploring the individual identity, and the relationship between the self and the other. I’m currently conducting research into the question of self-understanding
as an artist, self-organisation, the role of art in self-actualisation, manifestation and mimicry, including ‘the internet’, which mediates so much of my life.The atelier has been transformed into a site for production, which is in a state of constant transformation. Ultimately, my master thesis is expected to manifest itself in the form of a book and an event outside of my atelier.Therefore, open studio events where my process in the studio can be observed by an interested audience to aid my final work.
