In her artworks Angela Kaisers reflects on people's behavior within structures of power and in situations of emotional conflict. She looks at past historical events and current incidents alike, exposes recurring constellations and patterns and discusses how we subjectively distribute and perceive such notions. How collective memory is created and develops over time and how easily it can be manipulated; how the conscious present is configured and in which ways it can be and is being reprogrammed.
The creative process or method of production of Angela's works includes researching biographies and events, accumulating image material, twisting and manipulating her finds, turning them into new schemes and storylines that question what we comfortably have taken for granted. To visually and aesthetically support her observations she employs highly charged techniques, like embroidery and photography, to translate her stories into works of art.
