In my mostly cyclical work processes, I enqure with sensibility the relational capacity of body, place, and language The senses are the source for my writing, which repeatedly nestles into my sculptural works and my performative practices. In the work «Silver
Stream (Piece for Resonator)», 2023, a voice recounts two distinctive encounters, with a forest clearing, the view into the trees, and the second encounter with a beach, overlooking the motion on the surface of the sea. The Resonator Gong (2022) by
sound artist Samuel Tschudin is the source of the voice. * The disembodied voice strikes the gong, materializes through its frequency, and is perceived almost spatially. The act of remembering, which can be traced back to a physical, sensual experience
is being interwoven with a formless reminiscent of timelessness. The work «Silver Stream (Piece for Resonator)» was created in collaboration with Tschudin.
