Artist Performence statement:

The performance aims to mark the situation which is the genesis of the pictures. This event is crucial in my story. Its traumatic nature, extreme emotions and the breakdown that I experienced changed me and my way of perceiving and being. Strong connection with the object of loss, inexplicability of the phenomena accompanying "falling asleep" marked me and made me look for clues and answers. I experience rebirth and change through chaos, the profusion of elements and crossing the pain line.

Performance Short dream: Falling asleep Another movement, gesture, thought ... Naturally precise and with no margin for error. Repetitive, confident in its routine. Quiet, unprecedented storm ... Recall the memory of your last 7 days, how much they were similar to each other, what activities do you do mechanically, do you focus on them and are any of these activities capable of disturbing your whole reality irreversibly? A long, blissful silence, anxiety appeared, probably again unjustified, after all, you are not doing it for the first time. You will look for peace that will probably never come again. He layed just the way that I had put him down to sleep, only absent anymore, breathless and dissimilar. Then there is only pace, apnea, scream, resuscitation, journey, panic ... I am in the nothingness of suspension. Somewhere between chaos and utopia. I don't believe in anything anymore, I can't hear or see anything. He fell asleep. I fell into colorful dreams.

A phantasmagoric world full of puzzles, mysterious figures, symbols and sounds. The LCD screen displays the scenes of the performance - Falling asleep, which is a perceptible and inseparable element of a parallel dream space.
