Berlín (Alemania), 1975
For his artwork he utilizes antique and used materials, with the current focus on altered books. Through the artistic treatment discarded or unused objects regain meaning in a new context. If there is such a thing as the dignity of an inanimate object, it is restored here through the transformation into a work of art.
“The medium in which i am working is antique books, most of them around a hundred years old. Page by page I go through the book and cut around some of the illustrations. I don’t move pages or images, in the finished artwork the illustrations appear in the same place as they would in the untreated book.”
