Procedere, Performance/ Video Installation, 12min (2016/2020)

'PROCEDERE' is an attempt to renegotiate classical sculpture. A stone that has grown naturally over millions of years is radically crushed by hand. What in nature takes place through thousands of years of weathering is here brought about in a few hours in an artificial process documented in a video. There is a certain poetry in this thoroughly aesthetic process of comminution, which refers to the traditional theme of "transience" and that of "natural beauty". Stone, as a time-honored sculptural material, served above all to perpetuate an idealized concept of beauty. This work, however, does not include a sculptural end product. The emphasis is placed on a fleeting process. What remains is an installative projection of the process on a sand-covered floor.
