Artist Statement

Sites are predominantly sculptures or objects added to, or a modifications of, existing structures. In addition to their spatial sculptural-aesthetic aims, these objects can also perform a certain architectural function, depending on the client's wishes - such as a gallery, staircase, space for a lecture, a pavilion for education or performative readings. Although they are sometimes more of a minor architectural sculpture, for me anyway, the immediate surroundings and cultural and social context are what is most important, and that is what I try to respect and identify for myself. Therefore, I describe these works as sites. Sites in the sense that they provide a framework for the meeting of as broad a circle of people as possible to fulfill their partial function.
