She works with the space and builds installations, stimulating to think, feel and experience. Looking for abstract and minimalist visual situations, that will struggle with philosophical issues catching the current context of the world. Interested in what is universal, what about the world and what about the man in general. Going beyond her personal experience, jumping to the intercommunicable level, checking how far can we go into the abstract discourse.
CONNECTION POINT / BORDER
Multimedia installation: Inflated object (approx. 3,5m x 3m x 2,5m): tyvek, fans, wood base, electronics sets and software
2 channel video: HD 16:9, colour, sound, 1'00 ì, loop
The installation consists of an object in constant motion and two video forms with audio. The object grows, fills and falls in a variable rhythm ñ the border keeps redefining.
It puts the question of the border. Where is it? How does the border exist? Depending on the need and intention, can the border be determined somewhere else?
How do the fact of using the language and the assumed precision affect the border position into the world?
Here is one thing and there is the other. Here is my territory and there is the foreign. Here is my body and there is the rest of the world, it is alive and it is already dead. Using the language, giving names outlines things, sets limits. All divisions - biological, social, political, scientific, and any others - result not from the nature of the world but from the practice of life, of the arrangements, the cognition and recognition in the form of the language.
So, can you push the border?
