The more clearly you understand yourself and your emotions, the more you become a lover of what is. – Baruch Spinoza
I develop exhibition concepts and art projects around personal and collective themes. The themes are explored together with the artists in a preliminary deepening awareness and working process. The exhibition concept can be applied to other participants (visual artists, poets, musicians, art students, etc.) at different venues, also internationally. The preliminary phase consists of a 5-day working period and 3 or more online meetings.
In projects which maybe include exhibitions, rituals, and preliminary awareness processes I introduce co-creativity, critical response process (of Liz Lerman) and transparent communication at any stage. It starts from the deep awareness of seeing and honoring each other in his or her full potential and appreciating their contribution. The themes and context of the projects are in service of life.
