“My work focuses primarily on the research of physical and emotional body, its capabilities and limitations, on questions of its positioning in the social frame and the relation of society toward the body itself. The content is expressed through different performative forms and specificities of the performer, who is capable of a manifold, complex expression. At the same time, my work is delineated by my inclination toward the visual (study of visual arts), which results in the fact that the work is interweaved with the interaction of visual images and focused on the composition of space and spatial relations.”
