NO LONGER, NOT YET

The time when children become adults is a time when antagonisms of the human soul fight for dominance.
It‘s a life in polarities: euphoria and depression, compliance and misdemeanor, desire for group affiliation and solitude. It‘s a constant search between trying to get lost and being lost. It‘s a quest for freedom, for autonomy, for independence. To break out of the control, escape the expectations and rquirements.
At least for a few hours.

In dark rooms with colorful lights and loud music.
Stumbling into the brightness, when the masses are beginning their day; getting breakfast on your way to bed.
Between excessive euphoria and deep melancholy.
Always on the hunt.

My work shows what being young means to me.
The lust for life, the freedom, the naivety, the recklessness, the beauty, the wildness, the childishness.
Everything that you might lose when you are old or everything you want to keep when growing old.
And also everything that comes with it. The attempt to find your own identity and your place in society. The insecurities and fears, the being lost and the searching.

To have no idea where life will take you.
The feeling of being young.
