Survivors

Picturing bodies means exploring inner strengths and weaknesses to me and its position plays an important role. Here are “After a Nightmare I” and “After a Nightmare II” from the exhibition “After a Nightmare” held in 2015.

 

In the exhibition “Eight Graces” (from 2017) my works deal with different kinds of survival stories involving gods, immortals and human beings. They symbolise the individual and diverse strengths and powers within each person. In “Phoenix”, “Gathering” and “Roots”, the figures don’t have specific identities or names, but they represent a strong connection between body and mind. The body has a memory and the mind has its own physical limits.

“Wake-up” has a very similar kind of composition than “Nightmare”, but it was made almost a year later.

“Escape” continues the theme of nightmare.
