Artist Statement
My work is autobiographical although I do not use any personal details of my life but instead I use the stories that I can relate to and use them as a metaphor of my narrative. The situations, which attract my attention – most of the time are catastrophic events, cases of tension, the “border’’ situations. I use chosen stories to question the mentality of people caught up in the certain social and cultural dogmas. Through my work I would like to confront our perceptions about possibilities and limitations, try to suggest a bigger picture of the human potential. Some things are not possible because we fail to imagine that this could be possible.
Description of the projects
“Raised from the death”(2004-2005]
The project is based on the documentary video about remarkable story Daniel Ekechukwu, who was fatally injured in a car accident near town Onitsha, Nigeria, Africa, November, 2001.He lost all life signs and was later pronounced dead by two different medical staff. His wife did not want to accept his death, and as the result he came back to life.
Part I of this project consists of the storyboard [15 pages, 29,7x21 cm, color markers, ink on paper and animation film, DVD, 6,15 min.]. It is based on the testimony of pastor Daniel.
Part II is based on the testimony of the wife of Daniel. In this part I focus on the importance of the statement. The text from being the image becames an image. Part II consists of a diary book [color markers and ink on paper] and an installation.
“ The Book of Ezekiel” (2006-2007, drawings and video, DVD 6,45 min.). The work is based on the book of Ezekiel, chapter 37, Old Testament.
I use the text from the Old Testament as a narrative for the film and the drawings to make an animation.
