Her residency at Artsadmin will explore death and grieving within the context of war and the self-image to represent the space between the construction of the boundaries, between looking and feeling, knowing and representing. Taking as a starting point the shooting painting/performances of Niki DeSaint Phalle (1961-3) in which she publicly shot large pre-prepared canvases partially as an anti -war protest.
