My work is about capturing moments that move and shift boundaries, a search for corners and spaces inside the process of work. The connecting point in my ambitions and dreams, not just as a photographer but foremost as a human being, is the desire to communicate stories, discover tales that seem hidden from the spectator and yet remain open to the inquisitive eye.
Looking back, my life has taken some different directions and occasionally it felt random and without orientation. However, working for political parties and finishing my studies, doing editorial work, later photography and contemporary dance, I kept searching for a similar content, for a bigger picture that holds memory and allows to grasp what seems true and valid throughout time.
The word unstill crossed my mind when I enrolled in dance photography in 1998. A new world opened up and I thought about the nature of stills, the ability to sense change and the in balance of time, the latter captured like a freeze in a singe moment. the word holds a different connotation in German. Still stands for silence and unstill implies the absence of it.
I am currently collaborating with contemporary artists in Vienna, Milan and Tokyo. It is a truly rewarding experience and I feel grateful to people I work and live with. I like to bring in a process what I have been able to acquire so far, share and learn from other artists, appreciate the community. All that is created in my opinion is made possible by various forces, creative minds spinning and inventing images that seem larger than life.
Thinking about such images I wish to quote Teiji Furuhashi, the founder of the Tokyo based performance group Dump Type. 'The important thing is not in remembering words, but in how you yourself recompose these words into reality, in how you make memories into something of your own.'...
