Through sculptures, installations and performances, IV’s artistic interest is rooted in the juxtaposition derived from the complexity of the human body and its soul. IV sees our inescapable and corporeal existence as tragic and ludicrous; sordid and pure. She inspects her own problematic bodily experiences while exploring the interrelationships between Man’s original sin and their ways of catharsis.
Probing this specific arena, namely the “problematic body”, she embraces deep ambivalence as a creating force while confronting issues, such as – gender, sex, death, sacrifice, violence, taboo, religion to posthuman etc. As a presumptuous being, IV creates works as a mean to seek new perspectives and anticipations of the mortal flesh, whereas the transfigurations of materials are assiduous and humble efforts of the artist in striving for an ultimate metaphysical state of transgression.
