My art has always dealt with notions of space, especially with the relation of spaces to images. Earlier I was fascinated with modelling of space – cartographic and cosmological models as abstractions of physical reality. The perspective of my recent works, video installations, is rather based, physically and reflectively, on how we experience space. On one hand, the theme of the works grew from a need to contemplate the concept of image-semblance* of space. On the other hand, these works deal with the issue of presence vs. absence, both as a spatial concern and as a question of confronting the other. Some of the installations literally shift the gaze from the artwork towards the spectator himself as he enters the “stage”.
