According to my artistic concept, I perceive the participation of myself in my environment as a logical consequence. In Body Drawings I’m the ink and the landscape is my paper.

 

Natural Transformation (2018)

“Natural Transformation is a video (3 min 16 sec) of recording me in a black dress sitting in front of the ocean. I decide to walk into it and then dissappear. The moment when I dissolve in the waves is escorted by a flock of seagulls. After a few seconds I return in a white dress. The whole sequence has a dramatic impact.

I conceived this project meticulously, but I couldn’t plan what actually happened. I focused on walking a straight line into the water without paying attention to anything else when I suddenly discovered a huge school of big fish swimming around my legs. They were everywhere as well as the seagulls. They appeared together with the fish.

Natural Transformation evolved unexpectedly. With the occurance of the birds and the fish I realized that I could define the overall concept, but not its definite development—every environment has its specific, sometimes unfamiliar rules.
