Me 24/7

Cross-stitch embroidery, beading

From Me Vs Me Series

Object Series
Since 2020

An ongoing Series about the difficulties with one's relationship with oneself, complicated psychological states and mental health issues.Found objects – antique tapestries, embroideries or bas-reliefs infer different meanings as the artist adds text to their surface by hand. Antiques become physical memes with the inclusion of words embroidered over the surface. The principle of creating a virtual meme online by changing the meaning of the picture by adding a few words over it remains the same.

There is a dissonance between the object itself and the manifested issue. Often the colorful aesthetic of the object — its playful depiction is combined with more serious reflections.
