My artistic interests are based on perceiving fictitious reality and even more the active morality in societies. Through my research, I try to portray and shake down our constrained prejudices and stereotypes that strengthen the boundaries of our freedom, and at the same time develop people`s aeareness of the realization of their rights and satisfacion of their needs. Gender discrimination, inherited stereotypes, gander, sexual identity, socially marginalized groups, diversity and variations od people and their bodies ane the goals of my research where understending of all contradictions and stereotypes as an artist and the role of arts to intervene and re-examine these social constructs.
