Working in various media and with different materials, she essentially engages in a process where space, time and body become the tools and the materials. During her performances, she follows the strong impulse to draw, and in her ongoing exploration of the process she seeks out ways to expand the field by engaging in durational performances that include drawing with body movements. Time and space become essential parts of a drawing, and both calmness and disturbances – from the exterior and from within oneself – effect the natural rhythm of the body revealing as visible patterns or signs.
