Brief artist’s statement:
Performing landscape is the overall theme for my artistic practice, which recently is focused on vegetation, especially trees, and often involves site-specific work, performances for camera, recorded speech, video installations and various experiments concerning the environment, and which takes place in the border zone between performance art, media art and environmental art.
