Frischer Wind – Installation | An important sign in a moment of general uncertainty; an empty showcase, connected to a flying paraglider, which seems to be taking off - or has it just landed? The focus is set on the exact moment that marks a movement, a change; when space is made to form and create something new. After all, a fresh breeze can also be an encouragement to take action.

Les fiancées de M104 – Fifteen different Shell-Sculptures | From the mere existence of the underwater world to distant galaxies, the piece moves through a wide range of research concepts and critical thinking about cultural and social constructs of prejudice.

„A dónde va el blanco si la nieve se derrite“ – Installation, Game, Performance | There are fragments of images, mysty forests, gloomy cityscapes, mountains, fountains, flying teabags, cloudy texts and a hole to another universe.
