TIME BY STILLS
The video-installation piece, Time by Stills, focuses on time, femininity, and its delicate and fragile connection with nature. These themes are intertwined in this video collage by exemplifying the female body, with symbolic focus on fertility and motherhood, as well as their relationship with nature by enveloping one’s self in it. Historically, nature and the female body have gone hand in hand in literature, art and figures of speech. By visually combining these, the artist aims to amplify their significant connection.
