Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
“Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” has long been an inspiration for my art. Most of the works that have been inspired by Lewis Carroll’s book have imprinted on the public consciousness an image of Wonderland as a desirable and magical place – but it is not. I excavate Wonderland and I find there the helplessness and distress experienced by Alice and the creatures she meets.
I began with a series of etchings, all of them dark. Then continued searching for ways to express the contradiction between the order in the surface world and the irrationality and frustration in the subterranean world which led me to create performances and installations.
