About works

Ludwig investigates infinite possibilities of taking actions and decisions that sometimes bring unexpected consequences. Thus, he is constantly aware that these reactions are all started to form his actions. His works demonstrate how life extends beyond its subjective limits and often tells a story about the effects of global cultural interaction over the latter twentieth century. It challenges the binaries we continually reconstruct between Self and Other, between our own “cannibal” and “civilized” selves.
