Invoking the Forces
It’s a point of no return.
I’m obsessed with finding the foreign in the familiar. Most of my work I realise during walks in my hometown Vienna. One image of "Invoking the Forces" I made in Switzerland though, during a difficult period of my life. I would keep coming back to this image over and over again. Now I understand why: to consult the otherness.
"Invoking the Forces" is a story about self-loss and self-discovery. It tells of what we experience and feel when we struggle to come to terms with who we truly are. Questions keep us awake. Answers come to life. To find ourselves, we must dare to get lost.
And for the first time, strange enough, we feel safe.
