(eng.: The Mover)
/ 2005

This is my degree work for the Department of Fine Arts of the Faculty of Education, entitled “Photography on canvas and other materials”. I tested and analyzed an old, pioneer technique of developing photography combined with painting. The repeating element in the works is the woman body: as symbol of maternity, since she could carry in herself the fetus, or as a mother in search of her own identity. I built different compositions with the woman body and I put them in an illusory space. These works illustrate the time of birth and the growth, the life conditions and the whishes.

BESEDE (eng.: Words) 2005

This project was realized in 2005 in collaboration with the dancing theatre Plesna Izba Maribor and presented in Maribor National Theatre as a premiere performance of the dance show “Besede” (“Words”).

Quietly, but at the same time getting the attention of the public, the dancers moved the performance from the stage to the exhibition space, till they stood like in a composition, as silent objects.

This real composition connected the public to the view of the photography exhibited on the wall.

During the photographic session I ask to the dancers to perform with white balls in the mouth (representing the physical impossibility to speak). I shot different compositions of the performing bodies which express the unspoken communication.
