“I have been dwelling on “sehnsucht,” a German word which hardly has any equivalent in another language: desire/longing, aspiration/nostalgie, anhelo/ansia/nostalgia? “Sehnsucht” to me is a strong drive for making art. Using old, time-consuming, manual craft techniques to create objects made of found material—such as human hair—I often encounter the word “nostalgia” when my work is described. But it is more about the stories and experiences behind the material. It is about the constant change, the unpredictable nature and experiencing of the past and time itself. I get in touch with the images and stories within a material or space by tearing it apart and sewing or felting it anew together again. So what does “sehnsucht” mean in that context? What do I long for? As an artist? As female, human? mondkuchen – tomorrow’s touch shows an approach-in-progress to this question.”

Mirjam Elburn a un diplôme en arts plastiques du HBKSaar à Saarbrücken et une maîtrise en histoire de l’art, histoire moderne et histoire économique et sociale de l’Université de Saarbrücken (Allemagne). L’artiste vit à Siegen, en Allemagne.
