Desire, she

In Buddhism, there is an idiom: everything is connected to everything else. Life is a sum of vast fabric pieces woven from various elements interdependently. It is impossible to define a start and an end because of its entanglement. My work explores the hidden connections between me and surrounding phenomena. To embody these connections I use metals, considering as myself, and combine with other materials, such as fabric and thread, that represent various moments in my life. I cut, burn, drill, paint, and stitch them together. It is a process of listening to stories and meanings that are embodied behind the materials I use.
