My studio is my Home – Heimat.

What I do in one sentence: I research space and time.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: I knew I was going to be an artist since I was a child… for me art is my job.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: I would really like to do an installation with light and sound integrated in a specific architecture.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): I have many artists I like, old and new… it changes sometimes which one is
catching my attention depending on which process I’m in. Basically, Ellsworth Kelly, Kurt Schwitters, Helio Oiticica, Ligia Clark, Joel Shapiro, Palermo, James Turrel, Olafur Eliasson, Sol Lewitt, and many other ones…

I am afraid of not having enough time to do all I want to do.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: My name. The rest is not up to me.
