In contemporary German theater, the focus often forgoes a faithful representation of the original text in favor of a deeper investigation of fundamental themes. The human condition remains at the core of these productions, even in its absence on stage.
As an artist, whose work is intertwined with the theatre world, I follow this approach in my photography. In my own narratives, I strive to discover and explore facets beyond the obvious storyline given through the content of the motifs. My work oscillates between conceptual and documentary approaches and aims to raise questions about the role of human existence in society.
Formally, I use the Japanese concept of Ma as my director’s tool to guide the attention of viewers. Ma can be roughly translated as the negative space in a composition but it is also described as an emptiness full of possibilities. It’s aesthetics of emptiness and philosophical importance of reduction plays an important role in my art.
