My work explores how images, the object, imagination and reality relate to each other.

In the project "Tellerstories" the  starting point ist the observation that around a table we tell us stories - every plate tells another one.

Every plate tells a story - a plate story - and makes his users to story-tellers.

On every plate is another videostill to be seen.

The shots offer insights into sometimes intimate moments of the urbane life and provoke questions about the Before and the After. And soon, guests (around the table), hardly familiar with each other, are already in discussion.

The project "Tellerstories" should release new stories. Searching the borderline around voyeurism, rumors and their possible consequences.

The transient picture, the fraction of the second we call memory, combines  with the everlasting material of the porcelain.


In the end of September a dinner for 40 guests with 40 differents plates will be given in the Musée Rath of Geneva:

In this time the project tellerstories is realize in two cities:

- Geneva/Switzerland: Galerie Ligne treize,  Carouge, www.galerielignetreize.ch

- Gent/Belgium: Galerie verzameld werk, www.verzameldwerk.be

Every Videostill is printed with the Ceramic Laser Copy System, transferred on a porcelain plate and burnt with 1000 C and is therefore dishwashers-steady.
