Her fascination lies in the history of all the bodies that have affected or even formed her today's body: whether it be her grandmother’s body, her dance teacher’s, the executed body of her uncle, the mountain climber body of her father, the sick body of her grandfather, de/reformed bodies of her cousins with all sort of plastic surgeries, the body of her Barbies, or the lovers in poems and novels andmoviesthatshehasseen.Hertwoworks,IT’sjustaSecond2012andBodilessHeadsNo.1 #Sim ulacrum 2016, are touring in europe and middle east.
