“My investigation delves into the relationship of art and everyday life, and the status of our society's consciousness for the necessity of art. I am likewise examining the sense and purpose of my existence as an artist and my working and living conditions as a woman in a patriarchal society. Art has a strong transformational power that can be used for necessary societal changes. I am investigating gender roles and codifications in our society and I am developing humorous and effective strategies to overcome them. Within my site-specific installation, an associative combination of bronze sculptures, cloth objects, collages and photographs generates spatial allegories that facilitate a tangibly apprehensible private mythology. The symbolic and the functional, the ambiguous, the serious and playful, and the found and created are combined within a bricolage that I employ as an artisanal and material method."
