Again and again, particular details evoke memories of well-known cultural products and objects from our daily environment when we take a closer look: aren‘t we facing handrails, handles, knobs, pipes, and conduits? We can almost sense a functionality, which, however, never becomes finally tangible. The most diverse materials nestle together poetically, seeming to interact with each other almost as if in a dance. Profile shapes familiar from stucco moldings or framing convey a dimension of space that seems folded up in these multilayered reliefs and yet infinitely continuable.
