THE BLANK CONTEMPORARY ART
99 WORDS WITH BENEDIKT HIPP
In the last year in Rome as a scholarship holder at Villa Massimo, I continued my experimentation in the pictorial and sculptural field, investigating primordial figures and parts of bodies, places of transformation and transition. The body is a recurring theme in my work. I move between painting, sculpture and objects – between fiction and material. Sometimes this interaction seems to be analogous to the daily conflict between our ideas, our flesh and our bones. This conflict is where we live. Regardless of our origins or where we are on this planet, we all share that eternal in-between field.
