Texts

  • "Silent language"

    “These drawings were made on the pages of a scientific book from the 1950s, published in Italy, in which voice recordings were evaluated. The oscillograms on separate pages can be folded out to double the size of the book; these gave me the opportunity and structure to be able to transform them.

    For me these curves and diagrams represent a non-decipherable text; one which however does produce a particular mood due to its visual quality: delicate dark grey lines/curves on light grey bars, bars in different formations (overlapping, side by side, of various lengths ) which reminded me of maps or strange floor plans.

    They encouraged me to come up with rigorous and less rigorous designs that work with various allusions. Intervening in the original statement of a printed book page, I add a new level; this, together with the existing level, creates a new statement and opens up another perspective for the viewer. With a repertoire of abstract to seemingly representational forms, I create a dialogue with the existing context of the book’s pages; I do this by using various means such as rulers, stencils, watercolours, inks, pencils and freehand drawing. In some of the single sheets of the series there are strong architectural traces; these are “soft” architectures, structures that float like clouds in space, that could be constructed from tanks, or remnants of efforts of civilization. Overgrown with moss, these structures drift through space; shelters whose appearance alone is defined by the capacity to store as many vital resources as possible.

    Also there is a (subliminal) psychological aspect in the these visually rather dry graphics, which led me to ask the following question: what inferences can be drawn from these graphs and charts regarding the person of the speaker? Can we recognize whether the person is male or female, whether he or she is calm or agitated? What can the voice tell us about?

    These speculations led me to another long used means of diagnosis in psychology: the Rorschach test. Here, it is the striking effect of symmetry that draws us into its spell. It is noted that this test has already led to fatal misdiagnoses and it seems that there is a duplication taking place: that the subjective associations made by the “patient” are repeated in the psychiatrist’s subjective interpretations regarding these associations.”

  • "Polish Dancers"

    “Polish Dances is a series of drawings that I started earlier this year; in this work I try to explore the whole area of nationality, (national) identity, home, belonging etc.

    Folk dances are characterized by catchy melodies and rhythms. They emanate exuberance and joie de vivre, and cover topics such as love, marriage, or the cycles of nature. Just like folk songs, they are anchored in the cultural memory of a nation and uphold a strong national identity. On the other hand, globalization means that they are increasingly losing importance.

    For me, therefore, they also embody the ambivalence regarding the current aspirations for autonomy and independence of national minorities such as those in Scotland or Catalonia. Not to mention what has been happening in and to the Ukraine in the last few weeks and months. The issue is also related to the discussions in several countries in Europe on whether the European Union is still relevant or not, and to the very idea of national state.”
