Recurrent aesthetic modification of forested areas brought to mind a formative aspect of my child-hood. The words gehen (go) and Wald (forest) once constituted my attempt to explore the conifer forest behind the house. The forest became a constant during the following years of relocation. It offered us an interplay of imagination, construction and exploration.
Space of imagination, perception and memory. Scenery and canvas. Always working according to the structure, dimensions and atmosphere of the chosen site, I add – lay, measure, hang, position and mount. While the spatial experience is not meant to be shared with public, the works I do exhibit are photographs and videos, limited documents of the ephemeral situations.
The image above shows the forest behind the house we used to stay in 1992. I took the photo in summer 2019 when I visited this place for the first time in 27 years.
