on rice paper, embroidered on old textiles, in the form of special booklets or installations arising from projects
Small-scale, attentive projects
for social organizations (schools, child care and elderly care providers, housing associations, NGOs) looking for pleasure-enhancing or content-enriching activities for their target groups
In developing countries
projects which, depending on demand, stimulate collaboration and creativity. Examples are play and exchange projects for children
the design and development of products in limited edition in collaboration with small businesses and local artisans
Workshops/lectures centered on documenting
which illustrate the added value of documenting and show how documenting is done
which highlight particular things (eg details during a work process) on the basis of visual material from the artist’s own archives
Thinking along in an advisory or content-focused way
in the development of ideas and concepts
In the early works on rice paper, the starting point was always a picture connected to the time I was a child.
There came a moment when being engaged exclusively in my own art was no longer enough. I started working on projects that involved cooperation with non-artists.
Also Nepal is a workplace for me: the ubiquitous handiwork and crafts are an endless source of inspiration.
The essence of documenting is watching and listening: you catch the moment when something is created that matters, and you zero in on it.
