The exhibition comprises recent works that bring together several threads of interest pursued through my practice since 2010. Some of the consistent approaches I engage with are connected to my interest in an extended drawing practice. By this I mean to create drawing installations that contain also small objects, both found and produced. I am challenged by my own insistence in expressing non-linearity as I maintain a process orientation that is full of ruptures and repetitions.
My practice considers systems of control in their real and psychological presence. In the works presented, coverings, both as disguise and protection of the body, are drawn in various ways. Visible or suggested, these coverings are one of the threads that weaves among many works in the exhibition and stiches together different materials and means.
