“A wound opened exactly in the middle of her back, in between her shoulders on the wrinkly old skin.
By approaching ,the wound enlarged, became wider and wider.
The wound became a passage. It was possible to enter the wound- it was a door to another world, a hidden dimension.”

The landscape elements are the structures of possible homes, nutrition, healing- a perfect formula where the body could transform revolutionize and live a perfect cycle.
The body is the place that connects and dialogues with the natural surrounding, the landscape. Both are in constant dialogue and exchange- magic is the door that allowes body and landscape to open into other dimensions, spiritual spaces. Those dialogues are the only way to resurrect and revolutionize, create possibilities-
The subject is an ongoing work explored through- visual sketches in the form of posters- sculptures either clay or bronze and video- spoken world.
