The installation depicts a confrontation of a patient with a disease (breath cancer), her feelings, her understanding and attitude towards passing. The outer world is separate from hers, the perception traversing to afterlife. I want to show the materialistic world, defined by medicine, bed, linen, diagnose and surgical procedures, in contrast to the unknown, which begins to show with the color of infusion bags spilling on the canvas and creating an abstract pattern. Amongst objects are breasts of gelatine and gauze, symbolizing the illness itself.
The work is created in memory of my late mother and as a tribute to all women who lost their life due to breast cancer.
