Considering myself as a semi-nomadic,  planetary citizen of the cosmos, with an academic background in Fine Arts/Culture and Social Anthropology.

I am interested in the process of acquiring, producing, co-producing, adapting, inhabiting, transferring, integrating, reflecting and disseminating different forms of knowing. I approach art-making as situated practice and therefore travel and work at various sites, and sometimes approach research collaboratively and seek to work beyond disciplines.

Interested in embodied criticality I question what can be grasped, the possible agency of a work and the context in which it is placed.

My work has been recognized through various grants and fellowships such as IFA research grant, Austrian Research Society ÖFG, Saxon Scholarship Program, STEP BEYOND travel grant, among others, and supported through international artist-in-residence programs such as cultureland nl, Amsterdam and Örö Island Residency, Finland.

My way of working is multimodal, research-based and extends from sonic recordings, document drawings, video sequences and objects, to working environments and spatial constellations. With a tendency for conceptual ideas and imaginative thinking I address artworks as dispositives to think with all being and the potential to reconfigure small details of reality.

The collaborative efforts of on/off collaboration that I cofounded as a member, to seek to work together beyond geographical limitations while being situated in disparate geographical location were made accessible for a wider public audience by the invitation from the Museum Casa del LAGO in Mexico City in 2016.

Grateful for the recognition of my work through the Caspar David Friedrich Prize 2019  and the Federal Art Prize 'Bunderspreis für Kunststudierende', the support through receiving a Saxon State Scholarship for a period of 2 years (20/21) for the long term research The Universe as Your Library and the World as Your Studio, as well as the generous support through a working grant from Kunstfonds for the porjects hearing times and planetary intuition/contemplation, for the duration of 6 month in 2022.
