HOW DID THE COVID-19 BREAKDOWN AFFECT YOUR WORK AS AN ARTIST?
HAS YOUR WAY OF THINKING/PRODUCING ART CHANGED? IN WHAT WAY?
I’m interested to share my recent works done in this pandemic and also my short statement / my experience in video bite about this pandemic home staying and art practice.
In this pandemic we get to know different words, different meanings and perspective.
—quarantine, lockdown, isolation, crisis, food rush, work from home (…).
How this phase of pandemic effects the art practice? Are we getting any new window, influence that could change our path of visions, forms or subject choosing?
