In the series "fade out" I thematize the change of one of the most sensitive habitats in the sea, the coral reef. I approach this destructive process with the questions: How do species evolve? How do evolutionary processes create new species that can withstand the process of coral bleaching? How do they mutate or fuse to win the struggle for survival?
Creatures emerge from polymeric structures that crawl, wobble, or lie down to fight for their place in the evolutionary fabric in order to exist.
In this group of works, the material porcelain ideally symbolizes the world of corals, because it has always been a valuable, noble material that is also very sensitive and fragile. I make use of these properties when I create delicate and sensual objects that take the viewer into the equally delicate and sensitive world of coral.
I let nature merge with art, as I quote the formal language of coral, but also specifically use the material sensitivity of porcelain in the firing: in the works wounds, cracks, fractures and abnormalities arise, which seem to stand in the way of aesthetics and trigger many associations in the viewer.
