It is said that things that are worthwhile are never easy. Just like everyone else, I also encountered some bumps along the way. But even if it were possible, I would not change that! Why? Because on my travels I have seen and learned a lot and have been able to reflect that in my work.

Sculptures To Read, Books To Walk Through
The INDEX exhibition shown in the sculptural gallery in Osnabrück goes beyond borders. Both beyond the limits of sculpture as well as beyond the borders of the Osnabrück region.
The artists selected by a jury from the regions of Twente (NL) and Osnabrück (DE) show works that are located in the border area between sculpture and artist book.
