A solo exhibition with works on paper, prints and installations. The objects of the archelogical collection of the museum Burg Hasegg Münze Hall, where the exhibition takes place, have inspired me to create these works dedicated to the concept of fragility.

Here the interview by Mauro Sperandio of Franzmagazine on the work in progress for the exhibition.

Here the pictures of the exhibition.
