In 2017 I started taking self-portraits. In them I present myself as an universal artist, a sort of a mimic rag doll, lying on the floor of the art world. The images deal with questions of meaning and absurdity, importance of choice and anxiety regarding life.

Being able to work as an artist was my dream. But now I feel that my professional choice turned me into a prisoner of the concept of being an artist.
