Director Statement

I find a contemporary work of art to be a so-called (user) interface between the creator, context of creation and the audience. My activity as an artist is based on mutual creative cooperation and adventures with people that I have chosen. As a photographer, I have also been intrigued by the autobiographical details of everyday life.
I have experimented with the analysis of femininity from the neo-pop viewpoint; street-level action; performances at rock concerts; a video production on the topics of mental health based on a literary work; an anthropological study of a profession; including amateurs, etc.
In my works and studies on MA level at the Estonian Academy of Arts, I plan to continue studying the social demonization of mental health issues, not only approaching the topic on symbolic level, but also involving people who have faced it themselves.
