The Instagram project “#100DaysofQuestions” deals
with the current problems of the modern generation. It lasted more than nine months and was Installation consisting of 100 photos printed on acrylic glass in the form of a smartphone, presented.

For the project, Instagram became an open platform where participants could express their thoughts and feelings which are normally not expressed because of the fear of an open reaction. Every user of a social network could send me his photo and a question for discussion, to be posted on my Instagram account to be published.


I prefer to create social controversial works by questioning commonly accepted truths. Many works reflect my own search for answers to questions or reflect our reality. I act as an active and interactive anthropologist, inviting the viewer to be part of my artistic projects. In my works, I raise issues of identity, rethinking the post- and decolonisation of my national culture in the context of globalization.
