„My process feeds on the everyday through a constant research on the human being as a body and its relationship with the world. This connection is elemental and asks for the essential: How does relationship come into being?
Over 20 years of work as a massage therapist and yoga teacher encourage this process, which reflects relationship its abysses, ambivalences and longings in the focus of a poetic transmission.“
