Contemporary noise is a composition about the search for headspace and silence in the middle of the action, in crowded offices that misleadingly advocates tranquil lifestyle but demands the stressful amounts of delivery and progress. It speaks about the duality of being a part of hectic society and seeking to escape from advertisement overload, visual and information flood, insuppressible consumerism promotion and constant connectivity and hopefully raises a question „Is it possible to discover absolute tranquility in the chaotic visual noise?“
CLICHÉ. BODY: GIVE / TAKE / TOUCH
The composition ‘cliché. body.’ is consisted of three parts: “give”, “take” and “touch”. First two are series of prints the third one is a video project and all three of them represent the same statement - a use of a physical body as a cliché* to create an image on the surface. Also taking in consideration the modern use of a word cliché. This art composition was completed during a two year period and besides being a form of an artistic expression it was an important process to accept my inner femininity and a worth of it. Subtle, fragile and abstract first impression uncovers the figure of a naked body. This action of uncovering myself from style and image created with clothing was also an action of acceptance in a symbolic form of an open self representation.

Purification is an outcome of a try to deny a creative path of a try, fail, repeat in order to get the image formed in my head out onto the paper. It’s a result of a bold attempt to eliminate a timeline perspective in a process by going straight to the point, by printing layers over and over again until they melted into an unsatisfying mess. Full despite and rage with an unsatisfied expectation I ended up washing it all out. Ironically the element that I was trying to eliminate made it all matter as after a few years I rediscovered these images in a new light and kept it as a perpetuation of a great passion.
ONE DAY TRUTH 1
600 x 85 cm (60 x 85 cm x10)
“One-day truths” is an MA research completed in a form of two multilayered monoprint works and a collection of essays. the process was developed on the idea 'The every new decision made in a present moment is treated as an unquestionable truth'. It is visual documentation of a constant-change-based state of being. As the process like this can become endles I set the time deadline as the completion point. Together with diary entries, it became an alternative database on my self-reflection and the daily life of the academy.
