In my projects, the human body is the main object of study. The body is presented as a system, but at the same time as part of a larger complex of relationships with other elements - other people.
In 2020, these two systems were severely shaken by the global pandemic. Relationships and communication between people were changed or completely severed. The presence of the body became more and more virtual.
In 2020, body temperature thermometers were one of the most commonly used tools to detect potential infection and even to control access to many public spaces. The high temperature was a cause for anxiety, panic and isolation from others.
In my projects I often work with found objects and readymades, carefully choosing their connection with my body and topics. In "Self-portrait, 2020" the body is absent, but the thermometer placed in the box, after examining my body, carries the information about it.
