"another version of my memory"- Final Exam Exhibition

After some years abroad, it´s time to finally finish my studies at the "Academy of Fine Arts" in Münster.
On January 12th 2016, 17 pm, I invite everyone to come and see my exam work!

"undone pictures- another version of my memory" is a work that picks up old ideas from my sketchbooks. Ideas of pictures that have never been realized and remained "undone". Now I realized some of these pictures- thus the work is travelling between yesterday and today, trying to see if it´s possible to catch up with my own memory, and what comes out.
