Working On You

In collaboration with Julia Tielke

Mikropol, Hamburg, 2022



Working On You is the disclosure of a dialogue between two artists whose work mutually influences and conditions each other, in which the reality of one, insidiously becomes the fiction of the other.

The exhibition is about relationships: Body and space, inside and outside, me and you. The half-fictional, half-documentary video material, which shows a woman over several years in her working and private life, is about the end of a queer love affair and the confrontation with it in her own artistic practice. Questions are raised about the limits of authorship and artistic continuity.

“A large room into which the sunlight falls. The windows are open. In front of the windows hang long, white curtains made of thin fabric. The wind pushes them lightly into the room. Everything is clean and tidy. We walk barefoot on the light floorboards. You stand at the window smoking a cigarette. You come out of the shower and your hair is wet. You are lying on the sofa reading a book. Your feet are on the backrest. There is a tall bookcase on the wall. You have read to me book after book from it over the years. I sit at the desk and watch the sun on the floorboard. I put my feet up on the warm spots.”

for Where People Meet People

By Hayato Mizutani

Planten un Blomen, Hamburg, 2021


“A large table with a diameter of 15 meters. A table where people can meet other people. I dream of a common get-together without obligations, but with the possibility of encounters.”

Stadtteilzentrum KroKus, Hannover, 2018


Kronsberg becomes Held:innenhood, in which all the disappeared, forgotten or yet undiscovered heroines are at home. Most of them are everyday heroines. In a flashy outfit, Kronia wanders through the district and gets into conversation with different women who live there. In short, comic-like videos, Kronia’s adventures on the Kronsberg are presented in an exhibition at the end of the residence. The resulting videos are brightly colored windows through which we look behind the everyday life of the city and discover special women and their superpowers in amazement.

Overlying. Outlying. Practise lying. We have made a sensational discovery that will knock your socks off. The missing piece of the puzzle has been found. We invite you to the lie counter and turn water into wine. Speculative, digital, sporty.

Archiv für Schönheit und Verlust

In collaboration with Anne Brammen, Hilkje Kempka, Maria Umbach

Uferstudios/Parkaue Berlin, 2016 — 2017


A place where stories of loss are collected, a place where farewells are celebrated, a place where you come out more beautiful than you went in.

The flea market as an allegory of farewells, provides the framework for a space that is laboratory and beauty studio in one. Here, losses are anonymously recorded, categorized and archived, hands washed and nails painted. A fragile floating map of farewell is created.

A year later, the archive is opened. In collaboration with the neighborhood of the Uferstudios Berlin, a polyphonic sound collage develops that bundles the collected losses of the previous year into a net-like listening station.

Kampnagel, Hamburg, 2016


Okay. Okay. Okay. I got it. I’m supposed to go in there now. I’m supposed to take off my damn shoes and someone grabs me softly by the shoulder and says: Come.

A theatrical installation that demands physical engagement from the visitors and promises a unique experience.

We. Work. Beautiful.

FFT, Düsseldorf, 2015


In the context of a residency at MYKORRHIZA-EIN APPARAT, six adults, four children and two rabbits came together, founded and inhabited a shared workspace, a pop-up office, a laboratory. Self-experiment and durational performance at the same time. Everyday life and state of emergency run into each other. A growing installation that focuses on the themes of community/work/beauty. A cardboard disco moves through the city, a stalactite cave made of foam becomes a place of recreation for children, the offices of the theater become a community kitchen. At the end there is a festive neighborhood dinner, where what would otherwise have ended up in the trash is shared.
