  Her work is about personal identity. The traces that remain as the result of exploring life, communication and human relations. Traces which we leave behind and they can’t avoid their destiny. Everything is about time. Everything has its own characteristics, nature and essence. Everything that happens is unique in time. Like Maeterlinck said:  Who can speak about the power of events? Are we them or are we nothing else but just those events? Did they gave birth to us or did we give birth to them? Do we attract them or do they attract us? Do they transform us or do we transform them? Are they ever wrong?
