In my work, I devote a lot of attention to the color of my own object, it inspires me how it affects the environment, how it creates space.

Midnight in a Perfect World was created at a time when the noise of events that sparked worldwide hysteria was still too quiet for the dormant European communities. Nevertheless, even then the SARS slogan in the consciousness of the entire Far East evoked a feeling of uncertainty and fear.

My work refers to a utopian moment when everything works perfectly, precisely arranged, safe and hygienically safe. However, the impersonal, non-representing emptiness manifested in the neon light causes anxiety and wonders what the night will bring.
