Ink on paper

Ongoing project

These paintings are the analysis of a childhood time when everyday life and relationship with my mother was strongly defined by religion. In the small apartment where we used to live during this period there was a strong feeling of presence of god. Now it is locked and used as a storage. The memories from that time, have somehow turned into the objects.

The project is about the experimental use of subjectivity as a material.

The works are the reconstruction of me and my mother’s relationship through the icons, gestures, spaces in the apartment.
