„Come and play with me!“ my artworks calls out to the viewer. But what seems fun at first glance makes the viewer’s smile freeze upon a closer look.
The desire to play is innate to us and is considered the key to socializing people. For a limited time the player slips into a role, acts and reacts as he believes to fit for the goal of the game.
In my works, disguised as innocent games, I use the high recognition value and the associated positive expectation of the viewer to tell the stories of people in need. It is not violence, abuse, manipulation, corruption, neglect and oppression only in itself, but increasing ignorance of them that make me so shaken and angry. I urge the viewer to look, to question, to feel and to rethink possible prejudices.
My art should be a determined stroke against indifference and pretending not to see.
