Securing of evidence and the examination of history and my own personal and familiar background are central issues in my art practice. In each work I incorporate a wide variety of media such as photography, drawing and video.

The project "Behind falling leaves" (EKB 1946/2013) draws upon my grandfather and his imprisonment during and after World War II in Ekaterinburg in Russia. I travelled to Ekaterinburg to collect evidence of this era and to photograph and record the environment with film. I am interested in the history of Ekaterinburg and in finding out what histories are still present or approachable.
For the sound component of the video "Intertrack", I collaborated with singer-songwriter Gosia Winter. We used crystal glasses given to me from my grandfather and created sounds by scratching the edge of the glass in combination with a double-bass guitar.
