In my work, I usually combine photos with word and objects. Ideally, an installation is thought to be a space that allows to be crossed, going from one "fragment"/piece to the other.
The empty space, as well as the gap between the various elements serves as an activator to the viewer.
The main theme is the different, sometimes subtle applications of violence and the existential collective fears and losses.

The photographic material as well as individual sentences, or titles, can be combined again and again with new fragments and gain a new meaning each time - because events are always new, yet already seen, both historically and in life.
