'Art connects and knows no boundaries'
Carmen is a collector of 'things' that she makes her own by editing them. Later on she connects the objects or memories with each other. She asks questions and enters into a dialogue with the viewer. The answer is up to the viewer, or at least sets the work on a quest.
What she makes are mainly spatial collages, so to speak installations / conceptual art.
She also realizes art projects with a temporary nature, such as the 1 m2 project and 1.976 | EXISTENCE (pictures). The process is especially important here. With the aim of connecting to the world, the feeling of being part of life with everyone.
In addition, she initiates cross-border international projects, such as mail art. Carmen also shows this in her non-profit gallery.
See for more information below.
