My work is providing different perspectives in the area of fashion and art through the use of abandoned, broken objects and the body in order to criticize the consumerist ideology, which is the main factor of depression in contemporary society. It is always connected with my own performance using objects because clothes are not the result of any trends or ideal styles, but rather the result of activity of the interaction with body and objects. The actual performance was presented by three performers/collaborators and the work will be presented in a video format.

My work is to provide people with different perspectives in the area of fashion and art through the use of clothes and the body to criticize the consumerist ideology, which is the main factor of depression in contemporary society. I always started my work from thinking (Deleuze-Guattari, Franco Berardi Bifo, Baudrillard) and am inspired by performance elated artists such as Erwin Wurm, Fischili & Weiss, and Franz Erhard Walther.
