I am delighted to announce that I am representing Macedonia at the 55th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. I have been appointed by the Ministry of Culture in Macedonia to present an exhibition of new work in Venice between 1st June and 24th November 2013 (with the press and preview between 29 May and 31 May 2013). I am working with Ana Frangovska, curator at the National Gallery of Macedonia.

Venice – week 17

Skinning still in process and now running out of time… at the same time starting sawing silk and putting together finished rat skins. I am so tired, almost to exhaustion, have to find more energy from somewhere and keep going!
