Alchemy of the Hidden is a textile sculpture series with which I examine the idea of alchemising fear suppressed in human body through shapes, colours and repetition. By exploring myself through the meditational process of creation, I search for the roots of my own fears, feeling in the body the sensations thereof. I thereby transfer the fear out of my body to newly created textile bodies - accumulated forms of stuffed textile sculptures literally filled with fear.
Exhibited in March/April 2022 at the Bernardo Bernardi Gallery in Zagreb
