My interests and practices are stretching between the aesthetics, the world of performance art and film production. At first glance it may seem that those are worlds rather distant than close, but in my life I happened to link them into one continuous story. Aesthetics, initially a random and uncertain choice of the field, now satures my relationship to nature, art, literature, and in general a sense of myself within my own reality. I wrote my bachelor thesis on the aesthetic experience through senses of sight, smell and taste; in my master’s thesis I focus on the aesthetics of spiritual experience in the natural environment. Circumstances of aesthetic experience is an interesting topic for me, maybe that is why I was somehow attracted by
performance art, the art of shared experience, a sensitive and pervasive area of artistic and human expression. Analogy and continuity in my practices, however, only crystallize in my retroactive reflection, because the production of performance art events was at first, again, the result of more or less coincidence. Maybe what seems to happen by a chance is ultimately driven by intuition, a silent director of our seemingly chaotic decisions. A film production was the next step in expanding my production activities in a dynamic environment and I hope that I will have more opportunities in this area. With its diversity of professions and abilities of individual people in one harmonious tangle, film as one of the most complex arts will never cease to fascinate me.
