ARTIST Statement
In my artistic practice, work and research is mainly focused on the complexity of human-animal relationships and the ways in which our collective and individual identities are forming in relation to it. The analysis of the tactics used by today's industries in order to get profit by inhuman treatment of animals, I use as an information templates for creating my artistic attitude. As dominant, the process of updating the selected narrative is emphasized in order to re-examine the content, which then becomes a guideline for establishing constructive dialogue. The ambition of my practice is to reconstruct moral and ethical attitudes built under different cultural influences, with the aim of understanding the diversity of perceiving animal as "other" and unknown, but which is in fact close to us.
