“for brooom”, useful object, size 113x47x7cm, technique wood, paint, wheels 2019

Useful objects represent life with family. The uniqueness of coexistence in the family.

“prasica/bitch”, video art, length 55 sec 2019

I like women’s asses…an eternal magnet in my eyes.

“lucid cake”, object, size 16 x 19 x 19cm, technique concrete 2019

It was my first time lucidly dreaming. Object is a fact of this event, a monument to the new stage of life. Cake as a gift … the concrete cake is overturned and I celebrate with the first candle.
