Still Lives

In Still Lives, things speak without serving their functional origin. Everyday objects move themselves and us as if they were objects and subjects at the same time: beyond any intention and meaning they appear in qualities that you - like a child - perceive only if you assemble obsessively fragments of your environment and forget the world. The installation shows familiar phenomena in different time-compositions as they transcend their human controllability.
