I am a visual artist based in Helsinki, Finland, originally from Austria. In my practice, I combine photography, painting and sculptural elements. My approach emerges from synthesising subjective experiences with culture-historical and art-historical occurrences. In my work, I often explore the contradiction between monumentality and ephemerality. I received an MFA from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig, Germany. My works have been shown in Finland and abroad.
