I have spent all my life in two worlds – or with two different feelings of longing – in Paraguay and in Germany. It is a life full of changing emotional tensions.
I am an artisan. My work is determined by sensuous materials such as fabrics, clay or wood.
The wooden bears I have used for my Buddy Bear installation have their origin in different Native American ethnic groups and in the popular art of Paraguay. They are produced with various indigenous types of wood, inspired by the fauna of Paraguay.
These small animals are affectionately crawling around on the Buddy Bear who is carrying them into this world.
There are no bears in Paraguay. They live somewhere in a remote distance, thus representing a feeling of longing.
