What is your relationship to motherhood? How did you intend to capture the sensitive period of expecting in your videos and pictures?
I think the state of waiting to give birth can also be found when I am working on my pictures or videos. Every piece of art is a piece of me, from me, just like a child. And I have every time the feeling of emptiness when I finish one of my projects, when it is torn out of me. Today is the last day before the first exhibition (preceding the Biennial) in Budapest. After tomorrow I am going to be a bit lost for a while. From a physical point of view, motherhood is only imaginary for me now, something that is weirder and more inconceivable for me than the best science fiction movies. Finally, if I focus on my feelings, the concept of motherhood is really sweet and warm for me. Something I don't know personally, but my bones, my body, my cells have memories of it, from my mother's body, and her mother's body, and her mother's body. It is a chain; I am a part of it, even if I don't have my personal physical experience yet.
In our times we see pregnant celebrities naked on magazine covers, but pictures of breastfeeding mothers are banned from the internet. As an artist, what is your relationship to nudity, especially in portraying an expectant mother?
What did the possibility mean to you to work in the framework of VARP-PA?
It was a great opportunity to open my ideas completely, in a calm, safe situation. Didn't have to interrupt or leave my work because of my other commitments. VARP-PA has given time for me to create, and it is invaluable.
What were your first experiences in the residency program?
Who would you recommend the VARP-PA program to?
