"I am a cat. As yet I have no name."

 

Katzenmilch 2010 paper, paint, tape, mirror, wood, metal 100 x 150 x 200 cm

The installation Kazenmilch consists of a carton box (painted and pasted as a copy of an enlarged package of cat milk) and two oval double-sided self-standing mirrors facing the box. Viewers are invited to crawl into the box. They can look out of the eyeholes of the cat painted on two sides of the box. From one pair of eyeholes, they can watch themselves in the mirrors and out the other pair, they can view other artworks in the installation.

 

A series of 6 paintings 2010 - 2011 oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, cloth

The painting series is created from a collection of mountain paintings by anonymous artists. I hide the main subject of the paintings with textile, paint over the original signatures, or paint new signatures in an exaggerated way.

The video work focuses on the two paintings “Felsentor” and ”Blick auf eine italienisch Landschaft” by Karl Friedrich Schinkel in Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin. An artcritic / curator and an artist comment on those two paintings. The work approaches how art is being perceived in different ways. The shot shows the painting, with the viewer reflected in the painting. The resulting images are like double-exposures and these images dominate over the paintings.
