presentation of my work / visions behind them / between matter and mind

“Thoughts, whether in philosophy or in science or in art, cannot be separated from the thinker, but they cannot be separated from the community of thinkers and speakers either.” *

I have been working with installations since early 1980s.
Evolution of the human mind, especially the interconnectedness of matter and mind and the emergent properties connected to this, are the important constituents of my studies, and can be seen as allegorical reflections in my work.

The postmodern research on cognition and perceiving and our actions in the world has a relevant part in the ideas behind my working. My studies have branched from philosophy, biology to semiotics, developmental psychology and the neurosciences.

I´m wondering how we effect our world by perceiving it, experiencing it and living it. This is what I mean with the expression “matter and mind“. For where does the mind end and the “world” begin?

For me the world is not a given place outside us, my approach is phenomenological; the world unfolds in correlation with our own cultural and mental development, with our broadening cognition and knowledge. This is an interdependent and ongoing process. -I referred to this in the 3-room installation called “Matter & Light” in 2008 at the Amos Anderson Art Museum in Helsinki. In this exhibition I studied the ideas of the evolution from matter to consciousness, thought and meaning.

My installations are allegorical reflections on this exploration. Can I express myself as an artist on this subject matter? Yes I can and I should, as art is the medium where you can approach the world from a different angle; art is therefore special vantage point to the world.

-As Maurice Merleau-Ponty once said: “ To interpret and express “that which is” -is an endless task both for a philosopher and an artist.

This is why I´m not trying to find scientifical answers by my artwork, but rather to reflect questions, thougths, feelings and perspectives. My installations manifest those impressions which cannot be precisely expressed by words. They are perhaps visual markings of “that which is”.

My art is space-specific. I’m often assembling my installations to fill several rooms, so that the subject matter can be sensed through the connotations of the combined materials, form, and thought. Some of the materials I use have a transient character, like water, breeze, light, grease, and pigment powders. But also stones, steel, glass and other reflecting materials are often parts of the installations. I prefer to create installations in which beauty combines with austerity, meaning and thought.

In my latest work I ́ve been concentrating on video-installations. By creating big wall projections I continue with my studies on human perceiving and identification. Also studies on cultural and social borders as well as mental locations and the phenomena of otherness, exclution and alienation have lately also been the subject matter behind my working. *Quotation by Siri Hustvedt

MADREAEON, ILIVEMYLIFETREECYCLE
I am literally part of the recycle system, when I die, my body will be burned or decompose and live on as little particles in other things. I have also given life, which makes me part of the reproductive system. With the work 'MADREAEON, ILIVEMYLIFETREECYCLE' I made a portrait of myself as part of the recycle system and as a transferee of life. The posture of the woman is open, without a gene, the legs graceful like a Venus, the arms like branches of a tree. It is also like a blood vessel system, full of life.

Together 2
This piece is autobiographical and is a sequel to Together 1. In the piece Together 2 I bring two embryonal forms together. Together they take on a new shape, together they are a new whole. Creating this piece was transformative for me. Loneliness was transformed into something new, something that is good and pure and lighter. To emphasize the purity, I made the piece out of pure porcelain clay, which turns a beautiful white when fired. Working with porcelain is an intensive and time-consuming process. Porcelain is self-willed work with and requires patience and love. This fits in perfectly with the embryonal theme, as does the beautiful white colour.

Io, von Argos' hundert Augen überwacht
Eine dreiteilige Plastik mit einem Thema aus der alten griechischen Mythologie, welches auch für die heutige Zeit sehr zutreffend ist. Nachdem Io, vom ehebrechenden Zeus verführt oder vergewaltigt wurde, verwndelt der Göttervater diese, aus Angs vor seiner Gemahlin,in eine Kuh. Die gekränkte, eifersüchtige Ehefrau will nun jene schöne, weiße Kuh zum geschenk. Zeus erfüllt ihr den Wunsch, aber Hera hat nichts anderes zu tun, als sie an einen geheimen Ort zu verbannen und von ihrem hundertäugigen Wächter, dem Ungeheuer Argos überwachen zu lassen. Zeus bekommt ein schlechtes Gewissen und will Io helfen. Er begibt sich zum Götterboten Hermes,n verzaubert sich selbst in einen Specht und weißt ihm den Weg zur Nymphe Io. Hermes soll auf seiner Flöte spielen und zwar solange bis der gefährliche Wächter eingeschlafen ist. Im Anschluß soll Hermes das Ungeheuer töten. Was dieser auch befolgt und erledigt.

Changes 2010
Greenham Business Park, the former Royal Air Force World War Two airbase, Berkshire This is Changes by the Icelandic sculptor Gudrun Nielsen, a monumental piece that has just been unveiled at Greenham Common where US bombers used to land – you get the references just by looking at it. Since the Greenham Common women saw off the last of the Right Stuff in 1988 the trees have returned along with the birds and the rest of the flora and fauna, and the military buildings have either been demolished or converted by the Greenham Common Trust which now owns it. Nielsen won a competition along with the late Michael Kenny, but that was 12 years ago and while Kenny’s large geometric form, Broken Symmetry, was unveiled almost immediately by Ringo Starr (a Kenny fan and local resident), Gudrun’s was a little tardy in taking off, as it were............... 17.11.2010 / Simon Tait's Diary http://www.artsindustry.co.uk/features/simon-taits-diary/45

Remains
Remains is started as a small series of works, where found plastics were placed onto wooden boards. Those boards where used as antler boards and serve now as a way to showcase remains from modern worlds. In my work I tend to connect different themes and materials. I am intrigued by the diversity and interconnectedness of our world today. How whatever we do today, no matter how small or big, affects others on an immediate and global scale.

Bee Banana
Bienen und Kunst, muß das sein? Baumstamm und Bienen, waren schon immer eine Einheit. Kunst und Banane gehen seit Thomas Baumgärtel auch gemeinsame Wege. Damit auch im Öffentlichen der Raum für Kunst wegweisend wird, hier die Banane, dreidimensional. Und die Bienen. Sie bestäuben ganz nebenbei das Umfeld; eine Befruchtung, die wir uns auch von der Kunst wünschen.

Genesis. Thought.
Project “Genesis. Dances with shadows” scrutinize feelings, mind, mental and physical, material. To Imagine. To Understand. To Feel. To See. My task is not only creation art images as a combination of different materials (included but not limited by glass, metal, wood and stone) but to understand what is the cornerstone of our consciousness, what is The Genesis? Thought. Imagination as basement, a freedom to think and to learn. The only first way to self cognition is Thought!
