In this installation, I step into a dialogue with my mother. She is dependent on external help after a fall. The spelling of the alphabet is intended to improve her breathing and voice. The video projector is an image of my mother. The video on the chair is an effigy of my person. Only my mouth is visible and the voice of my mother is to be heared. I’m talking about what she is supposed to spell and she repeats these characters. Because the video is an uncut film, I speak the front and trailer with an inaudible voice. It‘s only possible to read my lips, but the beholder can deduce from my mother‘s voice what I say.

Die Schwieger – 2016
In the sound and video installation „Die Schwieger. Der Schwieger.“ a very privat moment becomes a place of memory. A marriage bed. My mother- and father-in-law are lying in bed and they speak tlyrics for the poetry album. These lyrics are contemplative, funny and admonishing texts, beautiful sayings and wisdoms. Originally they are intended only for one person. I complete these texts with my voice and tell their story. I enable the listener to share my memories and experiences I made with them over the last years. What was originally private is now public and audible to everyone. The story of Ilse and Johann.

Licht is a video & sound installation whose subject is light and which is also made from light. The video is produced with an Overheadprojector on which I put on foils. The video and the soundtrack are inspired by the science fiction film „Barbarella“ of the French director Roger Vadim from 1968. I developed the text of the soundtrack on the basis of Cologne phonetics.
SALON VENUS
Sound art, installation, print / 2016

The installation „Salon Venus“ presents itself in five sound stations. Each station consists of drying hood, stool and magazine stack. The drying hoods are equipped with blue tooth speakers. The room is filled with chaotic noise. But sitting under the drying hoods you can clearly listen to the sound pieces WHO ARE WE?, SCHLÜPFER, LICHT, DON’T CRY and TOT. The sound pieces are accompanied by editions of the magazine „Fasson“. Video stills serve building the plot points to the sound pieces. WHO ARE WE? asks the topical question concerning the meaning of life and DON’T CRY offers elementary hope. SCHLÜPFER, LICHT and TOT are merely word associations in cologne phonetic on those title giving terms.

The printed magazines in Salon Venus:
Fasson 02 | WHO ARE WE?
Fasson 03 | DON’T CRY
Fasson 05 | LICHT
Fasson 06 | TOT
Fasson 07 | SCHLÜPFER

Oh zerfrettelter Grunzwanzling
dein Harngedränge ist für mich
Wie Schnatterfleck auf Bienenstich.
Grupp, ich beschwöre dich
mein punzig Turteldrom.
Und drängel reifig mich mit krinklen Bindelwördeln
Denn sonst werd ich dich rändern in deine Gobberwarzen
Mit meinem Börgelkranze, wart‘s nur ab!

Oh freddled gruntbuggly,
Thy micturations are to me
As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee.
Groop, I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes,
And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles,
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts
With my blurglecruncheon, see if I don‘t!

Hemingway and Shatner - two very different people. Two six-novel word cubes. Each cube is made of six paintings. On each painting is one word of their six-word novels. Inside the Six-Word-Novel-Cubes are sound systems. The music and the text for „Hemingway“ is inspired by a quote of Ernest Hemingway, his way of speaking and his work and for „Shatner“ by a quote of William Shatner, his main role as Captain James T. Kirk and the soundtrack of Star Trek.
