I was born in 1965, grew up in Switzerland and studied visual communication design as well as fine arts. In 2011 I graduated with a Master of Arts in Contemporary Arts Practice from the Bern University of the Arts and since 2014 I am a doctoral candidate to study towards the Doctor of Arts Degree at Aalto University, Department of Art, in Helsinki.

The topics of my artistic practice and research in fine arts raise cultural, ethical and political questions and I negotiated those in various geographical contexts with meaningful and meaningless; intangible and tangible contents.

The filaments of a white bird feather, resting on a lawn, get moved by a gentle breeze. At one point, the wind turns the feather upside down. It stays in this position until the end of the video.
The soundtrack is mute with the exception that, when the feather turns over, a voice speaks: “Closing my mouth for four years, was a long time”.
