"I want to show some of my photographs in an open space, space which is not an art gallery or museum. When art works are in a gallery the audience is limited and the focus is only on the art. There are groups of people who never go to art galleries, I would like to reach them through this exhibition. I imagine walking in a lonely field or part of town, and suddenly see some art works. What would I think? What are these? Are they advertising? Is it art?
Because I am a person who feels saved by looking at art, for example I feel good when I see art and think about myself and life with different perspectives, I want to share this experience with others. I want them to have a stimulating experience."
