Sonngard Marcks


The main motive of my work is preservation. I make the dimension of loss in nature tangible. The category of beauty as a prerequisite for empathy. The apparently inconspicuous always fascinates. While observing something new opens up, cross-connections arise, the view becomes more comprehensive. Discussions about content arouse more and more interest, the cycle of observation and new things never ends.
