Father Triology 2006. Since many years the questions of who am I? Where do I come from? And what is the package I am born with? are circling through my brain.

Within those questions I started with an intensive search by tacking my father’s traces. I went on a trip to the place where he was born, I included sometimes his fotographs in my work and red his script of a book about the years during the Second World War, which he wrote in 1983.

Three projects came out of this search which I named the “Father Triology”

  • Exchange letters (1/3) / 2006
  • Sylvester (2/3) / 2007
  • Cowboy (3/3) / 2007
