Simone Karls's works explore the relationship between people, objects and materials in our consumer society.It deals with a religion of plastic, which turns artificial objects into highly desirable lust objects. An inanimate object becomes an organism to which something unpleasantly independent and mobile is attached. By combining different objects Simone creates psychological, often sexually appealing and irritating moments.
The analysis of the narrow line between disgust and attraction plays an important role in her work. The voyeuristic feeling merges with the urge to turn away. The works confront the viewer with undefined memories of desire, possession, puberty and decay and incorporate his biography and reaction into the work.
