//ARTIST STATEMENT

In Narva Art Residence I will continue the work “Re-Animator”. In the work I use a timer on the camera and make selfportraits with statues and sculptures. I started this work in the ISSP residency in Riga and continued it in Circolo Scandinavo in Rome. I plan to finnish the work in Narva. Photographic Gallery Hippolyte will be applied for and Forumbox as venues in Helsinki to show the exhibition during 2023. I am very interested in showing the work in Estonia.
