In my work I Investigate cultural forms which stimulate romantic\emotional messages. Through a system of trivial, routine and daily images, I produce emotional baggage. These objects have been taken from a representation of an ideological consumerism world,, on which romance is based and function as a sign language.
In the work iconographic symbols are investigated under a social structure and according to the language of love in modern society. The matter of romance is created through the formation of syntax between personally loaded imagery, which is treated and organised in the space, such as:
And video work – a sculpture of Bambi, a framed curtain,a  family picture, a wooden horse. The collection of symbols I propose allow to discuss romantic feelings and ask, how does an object become emotionally charged? And how does a cultural dictionary of emotions shift from a private- to a collective memory?
