The idea with the sheets of my dowry, came to my mind on 2002 and puzzled me until 2010.
The reason was completing a moving, where I found myself suddenly, in front of a totally new environment with new things.
While clearing of old things, I came across my dowry sheets. I initially thought I would use them to clean my brushes. The emotion I felt unwrapping them one by one in my art studio, gave me the idea to create something new. I felt that those sheets carried a whole history and that it was my sole connection with my past. I started making embroideries, drawing them, cutting them and using them for various manufactures, small dolls and animals and taking pictures of them. Here, the idea of the “couples” was born.
