Artist statement:

By means of my artistic practice, I try to understand some laws, by which nature and humanity live, to feel how we influence each other and how we mold. I notice poetic and aesthetic links of phenomena and go through my personal experience carefully observing myself and the world around me: the city, people, nature. In my projects, I try to find a visual language to express these links using various media: graphics and painting, text and sound, clothes and objects, embroidery and animation. I create temporal spaces that balance between the inner world of feelings and the real world of objects.
