Personal Statement, 2018
I am human and step by step I try to understand what it means. I'm driven by an an irresistible need to encounter people. I treat life as a temporary experience and practice in coexistence, being dependent and waiting (for others and for myself to grow).
I am woman as a body and mind and I have strong relationship with food. I try to understand it while feeding others, asking myself what am I hungry for and if art is able to feed anybody.
With my art I communicate amazement of my own embodiment and try to ask viewers to experience similiar wonderment themselves. I work with what is given or found, common materials of little or no value and objects that as I believe, are able to preserve embodied stories.
Writing is my way of thinking. I walk a lot. I appreciate discoveries of others. I look at technology from startup world perspective and attempt to examine how distributed knowledge and networking are in use there.
My practice is all about commons: food, relationships, communication, body, time, space, relationship + food, body + communication, body + time etc.
