"With reference to static and dynamic mechanisms of sculpture (including installation, public art, performance and happening) I cross examine this field as an agent to create new forms and formats for public perception and action for better life. I associate and underline women empowerment issues in reference to imposed gender roles. I question the possibility of deconstructing dominant forms that represent the differences in environmental, social or cultural systems. I ultimately aim to solidify examples to increase awareness about artificially created power mechanisms, in order to universalize human rights and to reproduce collective consciousness for fair distribution of the "commons". Added to this, my aim is to create art that would reach more inner levels of experience. I believe that we are transcendental beings and that we should find out the manifestation of our inner forces that would lead us to transformation for obtaining peace and justice."
