My practice is predicated, both conceptually and structurally, upon an inter-medial exploration of a set of relations between (my) subjective internal processes and spaces that surround me. I find it possible to elucidate, expend and transform internal personal spaces of atmosphere, dreams, memories and imagination through their transposition into the physical space of a gallery. Point of departure of my approach is an understanding that the world around us is not a system of pre-defined objects and concepts to which we come and choose rationally, but that it is rather a dense network of unfinished processes where seemingly stable things are nothing but a reflection of stability of their images. Through my work I strive to create an opening which would lead a visitor from one level of reality into another, from physical to sensory, for collective state into individual physical experience.
