Il confronto con il cielo è il mio ambito.
Mi piace pensare all’arte come un esercizio di ampiezza.
Disegno con le polveri oggetti celesti che sono fatti di polvere e vento.
Costruisco strumenti per ascoltare il cielo, sono protesi per tendere verso l’infinito, oggetti che accolgono l’invisibile.

 

Die Konfrontation mit dem Himmel ist mein Spannungsfeld.
Mir gefällt der Gedanke an Kunst als eine Übung zur Grenzüberschreitung.
Ich zeichne mit Pulver Himmelserscheinungen bestehend aus Wind und Staub.
Ich baue Instrumente, die den Himmel hören können.
Es sind Prothesen, um das Unendliche zu erreichen,
Objekte, die das Unsichtbare empfangen.

The comparison with the sky is my field. I like to think of art as an exercise in amplification.
With powders, I draw celestial objects that are made of dust and wind.
I build tools to listen to the sky, they are protheses to stretch towards infinity, objects that receive the invisible.
