Artist Statement:
The textile sculpture consists of individual, machine- and hand-sewn, tentacle-like elements that are rearranged with each installation so that they constantly evolve. Fantasies about gentle forms of encounter and togetherness take on form and invite you to dream and gently touch them.
The installation also includes self-produced, synthetic sounds and digital animations, which are variably integrated into the installation via headphones and projections or screens. By bringing the different elements together and making the sound accessible via headphones, an immersive situation is created that encourages immersion in a gentle and sensitive mode of being.
With the flexibility of the work, I orientate myself on the octopus, my symbolic companion, which is itself in a state of permanent change, as it continuously adapts to its environment with skin, texture and external form. I adapt this property for the textile sculpture and tailor it according to the site-specific environment of each installation.
