As a multidisciplinary artist, my practice is defined in the reciprocal relationship between sculpture, drawing, text and video. I unite these mediums by corresponding with material to elaborate and reformulate its meanings. I am concerned with the notion of heritage, the surface as archive, how it can be transformed and hence act as translator. For me, material is a process rather than a finished product, and therefore in a constant state of flux. With ︎︎︎Luvendr, my collaborative project together with the media artist Alexander Martinz, I extend my work into music and performance.

After training as a graphic designer, I studied fine arts at the University of Applied Arts Vienna with Brigitte Kowanz and at Newcastle University with Katie Cuddon. In addition to my artistic practice, I currently work at the Institute of Art and Design at the Vienna University of Technology, where I both teach and pursue my artistic research.
