As a poetic supplement to Earth Day 2020:  

realized the Video Collage  Metaphors and Mutations in 2019 for 

an eponymous exhibition at Kunstverein Nürnberg. The video is inspired 

by conversations I had with the artist Peter Fend and the need to rethink 

the purpose of art towards a recovering global ecology.

 

 

„Deep below a volcano is burning 

We want to know about it but

Also don’t want to know about it

 

 

Am I, the artist,  ambassador of its kind?

And                                   Or

Romantic mind and creator 

Ambassador of its mind?

 

 

Culture verses industry

Culture as part of industries

Art as part of industries 

 

 

Deep below a volcano is burning 

We want to know about it but

Also don’t want to know about it“
