Crellestraße 44

Crellestraße 44 is in dialogue with the social project called Alte Schönhauser Straße 26, created during 2011, when I started to document the collective activity in my studio/home through paintings, 8mm film and Polaroid photographs. In Crellestraße I continued documenting life through painting, but I also started to investigate more subjective side of myself. As a result and part of this intuitive research, the recent works started to appear beside the portraits as subconscious self-portraits based on regressive memories and monologues.
