Lora Dimova's works are focused on the inner world of the individual; the material and immaterial fields of reality and their illusory nature. Lora applies a variety of methods and media, varying in intensity – from the solid matter of porcelain to the ephemeral world of digital media, passing through her own body and reaching for the pure vibrations of language and sound.


The installation Celestial Bodyrecreates the transformation that is inherent in nature, in the world around us and in ourselves. At its core is the principle of decay of form and its transition from one state to another. Space and sky serve as a parallel, mirror projections of man and his universe.


The porcelain sculptures were made during the artist residency program Creative Residency Arita in Japan, January – March 2019. The project is supported by the Art Promotion Center, Finland.
