HOPE/HOFFNUNG, Video Performance  2009-2016

 drawing a circle in front of important political, religious or historical centers of power, I intend to construct a complex perspective, which should point out that the protagonists inside these buildings  should seek outmost Perfection in all of their actions in order to turn the increasingly complex and apparently often unresolvable issues of our modern world to the benefit for all of us.Shooting location: Moscow (Russia), Red Square,Venice  (Italy),  Piazza San Marco; - Brussels.

Art % Craft  /  Sanat % Zanaat, 2016, 10 min.

Das Video ist im Sommer 2015 in Ibradi-Ormana aufgenommen worden.

In den zwei Orten waren über 80 Künstler aus der ganzen Welt zu einem Workshop eingeladen.

Ormana ist ein kleines Dorf in der Türkei mit 1000 Einwohnern. Die Leute die dort leben waren von den Künstlern "erschüttert". Ich habe mit den Einvohnern ein Interviewe darüber geführt was ihnen die Kunst bedeutet.Für alle Menschen ist die Kunst gleichbedeutende mit ihrer täglichen Handwerk    art % craft   https://vimeo.com/156133790

ESSENCE 2010, 4 min, Every perspective is shown as own identity, each of them is occupying the artist completely. They are mutually entering an elevator for being traced back to there very core, combined and interwoven – in a creative process in which the artist is keeping prevalence over every perspective. As a result this very essence is depicted to the viewers, here embodied as the one artist which returns from the elevator .

Treppenhaus One of the important motives in this Video are staircases. They are in my view a strong symbol of our way up and down – They are used as a depiction of all the numerous steps in our life and how they lead us up and down.

Time - In me - In you - Before me - Behind me - Step inside the time - Step through the time - Step ahead of time -To reach the time - How long for? - I don’t know - I need time

CIRQUITI it once began with a big bang, the creation of the earth and as far as mankind is concerned with the first human Adam. Since then the world is captured in a consistent loop of decomposition and resurrection. Humans are fertile, increased, and made themselves masters of the earth; they are apparently rulers over every thing moving on the earth - arent they?

EAST T(w)O WEST "It seems that all my life I'm dancing on a wire stretched between two fortresses."
Departure: The trip from East to West. It is always like a stretched rope which is unsecured and you can easily fall and get lost. The rope merges, serves for transport, but it is not secured. 
Arrival: I want to present the impact of the political information which simply traps us, limit us. Here are meaningful social-political scenes starting from the past up to today. Politic is everything for us. It is morning, noon, evening, mum, dad.. It is our life's circulation. 
Survival: East arrived in the West. Bare footed. Will he loose himself, or has he found his better road? A question to which I personally do not have an answer, what do you think about that?

FREEDOM When we came back home, we have a big wish for freedom. Get rid of all clothes which we are wearing through the day. I like this feeling of freedom. I feel free, I can breathe, and sometimes I feel I can fly. Freedom...... Maybe somebody is observing this freedom from the corner...

U-BAHN I have to use the Metro every day. I was in obsession with this travelling. I took my camera and started with "spin"-shooting. The camera was running near to my body. I did not control the camera, I was just shooting. The first chance to see what I have done was later on at home. ...What are they talking about? Does it concern me? Must I feel threatened.?

CITY I made this project in Istanbul. People at the streets, at the market, in the office, in the kinder garden, tourists repeated the word Istanbul. I asked the people about the city, and suddenly in one bus ignited a discourse between passengers about Istanbul. I shooted a 97 years old lady. She told us about the developing of Istanbul from sultan times to AtatEk and until today.

SARMA "Sarma" is a documentary about an asylum seeker from Iraq with Turkish ancestors. The meeting with this man occurred all of a sudden. He invited me on Sarma (my favor food). I always asked myself what are the real impulses to surrender the complete social live, to be prepared to pass all risks in order to come into a "promised country". He explained his life in Iraq, his way and how he came to Germany. But, here is another phenomenon which always exists. Asylum seekers can give up there rules and habits from there origin countries. They are slowly and difficulty adapt to the "new life". They start to dream about there homeland, family and partner from the own country...

VISUM FÜR EUROPA I was invited to an Austrian Artist in Residence Program which should last for three month. But the Austrian Embassy in Macedonia gave me permission only to stay in Austria for 30 days. I was told that I can not prolonge my visa in Austria I rather have to go to the Austrian Embassy in Munich, Germany to prolong my visa for Austria. I was shooting this European Paradox.

WHAT IS ART FOR YOU? This project was made in the Art Colony Galicnik, Macedonia. We were eight international artists - everbody of them gave me an answer in their own language to my question "What is Art for you?"

 AT THIS BOTTOMI intended to depict the coexistence of worshipers of the two big religions -the Muslims and the Orthodox- who have to life with each other within a limited geographical area - at this bottom. Bajrams and Eastern is celebrated together as well as Ramadan and Christmas. The people with cross and moon should respect each other. They where born on the same soil - but a lot of roads and wars were crossing and unfortunately are still crossing, and currently there is no indication that they will stop crossing in future, on this ground, on this bottom, where turbulence rules, but peace is severely needed. In both religions you will find the command "do not makewar", but the religions symbols are still burning.

He has to be (for) Macedonia, I am able to leave (from) Macedonia...Unrest, nightmare, everyday the uncertainty of tomorrow preassures me, is hunting me. For how long an empty tomorrow will meet me.

ZWISCHEN Can we release our brains which seems often to be enclosed in glass caskets forever, subject to the unwanted, messy, manipulative influences, just artificially being fed with those information's authority think are useful? Are we able to set our brains free for good intellectual evolution...

NEST What is Nest? Needs or wish. How many Nests we can build through our life?! A lot of them. People are looking like birds; they can always build a new nest where they are. I ask myself which nest will be better - where we have our roots or where we have good conditions for life.

TETRAGRAMMATON Every realisation of an idea has to cross the four basic elements. An idea is air born, developed in fire, canalised in water and realised on earth.
