Artist Statement →
Being back in Austria I was searching for ways to make my memories made in Tokyo feel as real as possible. Since I was documenting my stay both in form of video and poetry, I was striving to find the perfect combination of my two favorite art forms. „I Never Knew“ is real, it’s slow and fast at the same time. Sometimes there’s nothing, sometimes there’s everything at the same time. I want it to feel like Tokyo, that’s why this project has to cover every spectrum that was on my mind during that time. That way „I Never Knew“ breaks taboos with talking about female masturbation and body experiences, in a society that is still shut down to certain topics. Tokyo made me question, Tokyo made me feel upside down. But I loved it, and it was my goal to capture this weird, overwhelming mix of emotions.
