"My work delves into the entangled interplay of time, space, and movement. It takes offense at a fast-paced reality in which the present is narrowing, and spatial dimensions are disappearing. Memory and trauma play a pivotal role, as does the idea of pausing to perceive oneself. The phenomenon of falling and folding runs through all my works and stands metaphorically for a kind of post-traumatic compression of space and time, the collapse of here and there, of now and then - constructed splinters, triangles, and corners look like fragments that have been violently blown out. The interplay of indeterminacy (falling) with entanglement (folding) gives rise to the abstraction in my work. I aim to capture a moment in time that encompasses both: the connotation of a lost gaze and a potentially new way of seeing."(Katja Strunz)

Die Welt ist alles, was der Fall ist, und alles, was der Fall sein kann. (Anton Zeilinger)
