After I had a child, I experienced a lack of resources, primarily of time,
for effective self-fulfillment.
I soon realized that I did not, under any circumstances, want to become
a hostage to the situation, and tried to make the most of what I had
at my disposal. The result was a series of projects built around the theme
of motherhood and childhood, in which the child became either model
“Cococolaboration” is one such project. At the time the series was created,
my daughter was three. I gave her incomplete or, sometimes, finished drawings, inviting her to cooperate, setting up a dialogue that would allow her to chime in, while the viewer and I had an opportunity to look through the eyes of a child. Such a naive vision sometimes opened up an entirely new dimension, revealed an unexpected depth that was not driven by the original content of the work.
