The content-related examination of individual shelters and their antithesis as well as the question "What is your place of protection?" Has been consistently going through her work since 1999. In her works, she often contrasts the extremes of human emotions: dialectic, which is translated into images. In doing so, Weiss goes beyond boundaries, always seeking unity and contradiction, which she symbolizes through the coincidence of opposites (Coincidentia Oppositorum). The installation, front and centre of the Reichstag building was supported by Metzler banking family, one of the artist's patrons. LOVE HATE has gained international renown at the art fairs Art Basel Miami as well as the "Opening" object of Context Miami 2016. LOVE HATE is represented in worldwide collections. In 2019/20, another LOVE HATE installation by the artist in Berlin is planned on the occasion of the cooperation with the Stiftung Stadtmuseum.
