Inspired by the archetypes of the alchemist and the fool, I explore the opposites of knowing and not knowing through intelligent naiveté. I write poems in words, performances and visual art that are an earnest and absurd play between the simpleton-jester-clown and the disciplined practitioner of The Great Work. This work includes geometric drawings, cyanotype prints, paintings, videos and installations. My solo, interactive and group performances focus on the precise execution of pure, raw and improvised play.
I am based in Basel Switzerland, where I received my Master in Fine Art from the Basel Art Institute in 2016.
