Lives and works in Vienna and Sofia


"I’m not impressed with massive stuff; I like looking at small things. Details are quite important for me, I like ‘in-between’ situations; I present the viewer with a situation but don’t say what it is. I give a hint, indicate the hidden in everyday life. Just suggest it, not putitinyourface. This is how I explore the world. The topics of my work are different measures of conflicts and confronts, hidden in our ordinary everyday life."
