Collages

Flowers of Time (Blumen der Zeit)
2023

2022 (a project for the Family Day of Bundeskunsthalle)

I want to cancel out the supposed contrast between “terrible” facts and “beautiful” art: For a project for the Bundeskunsthalle Bonn last year, I turned headlines and newspaper texts into flower collages. The material came exclusively from the Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

The flowers of time unite the opposites: the flowers that are beautiful at first glance turn out to be archives of the less beautiful side of world history at second glance.

Photography

Aida K.

Theatre actress. Documenting moments of search for a right artistic form. Spirit high. Phantasy in flow. Verbal esthetic transferred into visual expression. Telling stories with no words.  Inner voice in full volume.

Aida Meets Bowie

Art of David Bowie is my eternal inspiration. I identify myself with most of the pieces of his art.

 

Shadow, Colours, Lights and Forms

Color needs shadow in order to stress itself out. Light, as given, is stressing out the forms, thanks to shadow and colors.

Collages

With photography collages I am closest to theatre: I make my own circumstances, stage set design, costume, action…

Audio Installations

Aida K.

Theatre actress. Radio reporter. Photographer. Sound artist. Story teller. Connecting the visual world with the world of sounds and speech.

Selam Space Girl

A radio drama

This radio-game is taking place on the planet called Life. In this audio-play is all about to protect existence with sense. Existence on planet Life can be a big pleasure, spiritual and physical.  But there is an enemy on this planet – Monster Senselessness, who lives from destroying pleasure on planet Life.

5 W Stories for Millenials

Aida K’s latest Audio Installations tells the story of the two angels (Meleks) who are guiding every human beings through life.
( in German).

Workshops

Another Path to Arts

Possibility to teach is noble action. Some skills are already in pupils, teacher’s task is to equip them for mastering those skills – with infrastructure and knowledge. Support of teacher who helps pupils to express them better last even after the very process of teaching. Its beauty is hidden in life challenges. Both of  teachers and pupils. Teaching and providing infrastructure to pupils makes my inner voice sings a song devoted to beauty of human kind. I am honoured to show to others ways which could lead to art.
