I (she/her) am a visual artist working in a variety of media. Most of my works are craft-based explorations of different themes. The resulting objects tend to walk the line between critical design and art.
I often explore and reflect on various themes through the medium of jewellery. Jewellery is particularly well suited to reflecting on socially relevant issues because of its almost automatic inherent reference to identity.
Many of the objects shown here are body-related but not necessarily wearable.
"Surface of Projection" deals with the potential of mass objects to carry individual memories. The work is part of my PhD research project at Hasselt University and the PXL-MAD School of Arts in Hasselt, Belgium, funded by the Special Research Fund (BOF) of Hasselt University (BOF21DOC04).
I (1990°) completed my apprenticeship as a state-certified goldsmith at theState Drawing Academy (Staatliche Zeichenakademie) in Hanau (DE) in January 2012. In the same year, I began studying jewellery design at the Hochschule Wismar University of Applied Sciences Technology, Business and Design (DE), graduating in January 2017 as a Diplom-Designerin (Fachhochschule).
In the following years, I worked as a freelancer, was part of a producer gallery and received first teaching assignments. In September 2018, I returned to Hochschule Wismar for a part-time teaching position, being primarily involved in teaching within the basic education of jewellery and product design students.
In 2019, I joined the PXL-MAD School of Arts (BE) for master's studies (Jewellery Design & Gold and Silversmithing), graduating in June 2020 as Master of Arts (MA) in Visual Arts.
Subsequently, I returned to Hochschule Wismar as a part-time lecturer. Here I worked until the end of October 2021.
On November 1, 2021, I started as a PhD student at UHasselt, Faculty of Architecture and Arts and PXL-MAD School of Arts in Hasselt (BE) with BOF funding (BOF21DOC04).
The title of my research is An Act of Deviation: When Objects Carry Memories. Research on Deviation as an Artistic Strategy to Reflect on the Relationship Between Jewellery, Identity and Memory.
