“Filter Object Series” question our stereotypical perceptions of the female representation. Objects, roles and clichés are combined in a multilayered exploration displacing the viewer’s expectations of everyday reality.  Ordinary found objects of popular and consumer culture, placed un bizarre juxtapositions, are utilized in a playful way to depict not the thing but the effect it produces. An assemblage of objects, transitory and performed identities.
