In 2014 first video films and performance pieces. Since that year conducted several video and performance collaboration projects with artists from Europe, the Far East, Africa, Russia, and Mexico Themes in my work have a vision towards identity, relations (between humans and the human environment), transition, boundaries, lost, loneliness, sexual topics, inner strife, time, destruction, death.
I am interested in isolating these subjects respectively objects, cataloging them, analyzing them, and studying them in detail. Deepening the context in which they find themselves, how they differ from one place to another, urban / rural and social environments, neighborhoods, or communities.
