Driven by a better understanding of cultures and traditions, Lukas Heibges regards history through its influence on the presence. The uncovering of living traces and remains from the past forms the main focus within his work.
To him, history is not to be considered as a closed chapter, but as a visible part of the present world. He explores the ways "relics" merge with today, whilst transferring his own view and experience of the world. His projects evoke personal involvement as well as awareness for the past. Eventually everybody is enabled to interpret the connection between reality and past.
