What did your stay at Messen mean for your artistic work?
Messen means for me close to be the Nature. I was never so isolated before. That affects my work as well. I worked with full of concentration.
What, if it did, did your stay mean for you in your artistic work and development?
I have my own working tempo during the work. I think Messen helped me to keep this rhythm. I have already planned my work before I came to Messen. So that’s why I just realised them in my studio. I finished everything before I planned. The working progress speed it up.
What did your stay do for your knowledge of Hardanger and Norway?
I have been in Norway a couple of times, before I came to Hardanger. Norway inspired me every time. I have always very inspirational and effective times. I think the reason is, there is less destractive things around. I appreciate Norway.
How has the stay influenced your contact with other artists?
I was very lucky when I was there. I met with great Brazilian and Canadian artists. Unfortunately we couldn’t spend so much time but what we had was very worthy time together.
