The artist’s latest series „VOID OF DAYS“ – a suite of collages and remixes based on random footage and found material of our daily lives. The works consist of poly-image layerings that are flowing and merging into each other conveying a dense visual experience while at the same time telling ambiguous stories.They take reference to what is both familiar and unsettling: Today’s visual overload blurs the lines of perception and assembles myriads of snippets and clippings to a caleidoscopic, irridiscent picture of life.


VOID OF DAYS

How to read a caleidoscope? It oscillates, it is missing legibility, clarity, structure and validity, it seems to be void of clear statement and meaning – at first glance. On a closer look though we may find contextual assignments, personal references and suggestions for various narratives. Strangely enough ambiguity releases new and unusual, unexpected ways of perception.
