Artist Statement

​"I remember a house in the fog; time which is formed in its own shapes"

(Trakovsky Andrei, Sculpturing Time)

I sculpt an iron frame for a dome and insert Arak into glass flames. My works range from performance to installation, video, sculpture and drawing.

Through questions of glamor and value, I deal with questions related to gender games, attribution and belonging, Kabbalistic customs and myths, canons of beauty and luxury among hierarchical criteria. 

Just as Anna Mandiata, a Cuban-American artist created a space for man in the open space ("Earth Body", 1970) I try to create a performative presence through repetitive, physical rituals ranging from vulgar to elegant, materialism to sacred and holly, delicacy and vulnerability.
