At Grafikwerkstatt Dresden - 4th and last Residence Project

At Grafikwerkstatt Dresden, Junghansstrasse 3, Dresden, Germany 13.09.21 - 20.09.2021

Yesterday I finish the 4th and last part of my residence projects. Very different to my performance video, video dance and photographic collaboration projects I made during my stay. The 4th part was a printmaking project. I created a series of abstract lino cuts with the working title Red Zen. 

I did the hand printing at Grafikwerkstatt Dresden (Graphic Workshop Dresden), Dresden, Germany. The workshop was founded in 1958 and is run by graphic artists and printers.

Thank you to the supervising team of Torsten, Udo and Peter for the tea

Gallery ART FACTORY FLOX

Friesestrasse 31, 02681 Schirgiswalde-Kirschau, Saxony, Germany


16 artists from five countries will present themselves from September 12, 2021 with the exhibition "WerkZeuge (n)" at the “Gallery Art Factory Flox” The exhibition is organized by the art initiative Kunstinitiative "Im Friese" in Kirschau. The exhibition project deals with the aesthetics and the effect of tools, a topic that is familiar to everyone. The artistic exploration is implemented in various individual installations, photographic work, objects and paintings in the exhibition. The different appearances of tools become art objects through a functional shift. The aesthetic context is thus placed in the foreground.

Curator Holger Wendland


My contribution to the exhibition is made up by a selection of photographic works and one installation related to the exhibition subject. The photographic work shows motives associated about tools and the process of creation from Ghana, India, China, Portugal and The Netherlands. The installation is "side-specific" as it is assembled from leftovers and tools from my lino cut project I was doing there

This work is a mix of alienation, metaphoric illusion, mythic identity and classical myths. Therefore the work is containing more then just one interpretation. In the video appear two performers (female and male) , but performing on two different levels and dimensions. But nevertheless there are related to each other.

Artist Residence Kunstinitiative Im Friese

Since 7th of July until 30th September 2021 my temporary working location is in the province. In a small town called Schirgiswalde-Kirschau. Located in the federal state of Saxony, Germany . Around 65 km from Dresden and 11 km from Bautzen. What is the purpose to be there. It is a three month funded artist residency - Kunstinitative Im Friese. However the projects I had in mind for to create during the residence began quite arduous.

Not every project I would liked to developed and to work on was possible to start there. For several video and photography projects (with Alex Mars / Anna Grabowska) I had to go once to Berlin and once to Dresden (with Anne Rosenbaum). In the time between of these projects I started to work on a lino cut series at my location. However I only will be able to print this series at the Grafikwerkstatt in Dresden. 

Finally in the last half of August I was now able to create directly in collaboration on the spot a Screen Dance and Performance Video project with the local female dancer Jana Schmück (Bautzen), director and founder of tanzART

The Fleeting Moment of Water / Shinano Primitive Sense Art Festival 2021

The Fleeting Moment of Water / Shinano Primitive Sense Art Festival 2021


Fri, August 27, 2021 – Sun, August 29, 2021

Primitive Sense

This year’s primitive sense art festival has the theme of “The Fleeting Moment of Water.” It is an attempt to see what kind of festival is needed under the current situation.

When people straightly face to the nature, primitive sense will return to our feeling. we think fine art is born at that moment. “Nature” is not only at outside of us, contains the life of ourselves, inherited from the origin of life. It is to create a festival as a cultural boundary that connects the outside and the locals, connects art and tradition, and cities and regions.

My work “Constanly Floating and So Rising” will be screened on 27th of August at Shiano Hall
