„Freedom, march into the kitchen!”
Freedom, march to the kitchen! In large-format photography young woman who is also an author of the installation is sitting in the kitchen, her hand is holding a knife and cabbage, and in the air are swirling red and white confetti, which like the architecture of the room seem out of place.
Freedom is summoned to the kitchen to make it the status of emergency and instrumental utility.
The woman, as guardian of the hearth, is fighting for the dignity and independence, defends their beliefs and place on earth. She demonstrates its strong position turning sword to knife, a shield to cabbage, which in its conviction have the same firepower.
Confetti shows a remarkable celebrating shown gesture and thus is the crowning triumph.

Our space often reflects our lives and inner feelings. Disorder is a demonstration of deeper, hidden problem and the process of ordering is some kind of a therapy. All the drafts and drawings made on pictures and finally a more precise sketch, show the process of thinking and consecutively instigated steps. It is the whole sequence of thoughts, ideas connected with the notion of our reality.

Motherhood: The biggest wave of love, happiness and connection with old primitive powers mixed with fear, uncertainty curiosity and pain. After becoming a mother I had a great need of finding a way to express those strong emotions. Patchwork was traditionally created by women to cover and protect their loved ones. This art piece incorporates different materials and fabrics as well as photograph printed on canvas. It’s designed so it can be used and therefore become a part and a witness of life. The plush phantoms are created to enhance those positive emotions, be crying and laughing out loud they call for our attention.
