Collaboration | AT | 2020

Das Rund creative film production asked me to answer a simple question: What is courage?
Here is my answer:

“Courage measures a person‘s ability to cope with physical and psychological pain or challenges. Having a closer look at this project you may realise that fire can symbolise many things, but let my answer be passion & force. Courage makes me think of infinite possibilities, like the coexistence of fire & water.“

10.    SAFE IN THE ARMS OF ANOTHER60x40 cm, Pigment Inkjet Prints from scans of original color and black and white negatives, limited edition | 2019 - 2020

“I tried calling, but there was no answer, so I decided to put my mind at ease.”

Initiated by the desire for liberation – against my nature, I allow to devote myself to the unknown and unpredictable. I pause the reasoning and process. This series is a collection of fleeting heartbeats, just happened to be there.
