About the project

As a contemporary wanderer, she feels Berlin from the point of view of a walker, a naturalist, patiently collecting little, fragile, interstitial things and upcycling natural waste and found objects. Her glance is close, tactile, looking at the urban landscape as a hidden wood. Fallen branches, seeds, acorns, raffia, egg shells are her elective matter for works on paper and immersive, contemplative site-specific installations.

The development of her works is determined by her capability of reading various territories, by chance and by the natural availability of materials, while the final mood reflects the suggestions of the place and the period.
