Using personal clichés and images, associations and movement, the artist tries to find a way to define herself by desperately attempting and failing to take an imprint of her teeth – the forensic equivalent of a biographical identity that also symbolises vulnerability, as hidden personal secrets.
Basic insecurities and fundamental fear of human existence are expressed in her effort to attempt a personal portrait of her inner self.
