Her artistic research is intermingled with travelling and with everyday life. Her subject matter gravitates around a vibratory relationship between the everyday and the arcane. The perceptual experiences she explicates interweave the natural and supernatural, the abstract and concrete, fact and fiction, compatible and incompatible realities. Her narratives and journals are tinged with humor, acute observation and the distancing of a traveller, an outsider, a guest. There are subtle quips, linguistic innuendoes and double entendres in her prose and poetry that affect the unfolding of layered dimensions of meaning. Her writing evinces a neo‐romantic quality in the way she draws relations between nature and self that interfaces with a sharp, postmodern subversiveness. Her literary style is variegated and performative, as each text asserts its own tonality, its own conviction, its own search and re‐search.
Sher Doruff

I think she did something which is very rare: she arranged a state of being, a state of mind, and she did it by... enfin, I use the words of Tarkowsky, by sculpting time, by working with time, with space and by not acting, but going into a play and going out again, being herself, questioning (...) When she performs, in the approach of performance, the personal permeability - she is aware of it and she considers it as a vehicle, a tool to work with.
