Permanent Collection at the Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Florina, Greece

A photo of an installation I did last November on the banks of the Seine river in Paris, France called "An Ankh For Paris" was selected from several works in the ArtClash 2016 exhibition in Florence's Palazzo Vecchio to become part of the permanent collection at the Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Florina in Greece. The installation, made out of 200 baguettes measuring 16m x 12m was created to show solidarity and support for Paris after the terrorist attacks on November 13, 2015. The Ankh, an Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol meaning "everlasting life" is also known to be the shape of a bull's vertebra, implying strength and power.

Gaia III Exhibition at City Hall, Paris, France

The Gaia III exhibition was hosted at Mairie 2e, - city hall in the 2nd district, to commemorate International Women's Day. I was excited to fly back up to Paris and spend time with curator Julia Rajacic, along with artists Morgan Le Cam, Jisook Min, Laurence Hochin, AnneCecile Surga, and Şirin Döğüş. "Lead Feet," my big nest sculpture was on display along with my two videos titled, "What Is Home," and "A Letter To My Sister," which were projected in the main terrace.

Here are some photos of the installations in progress, as well as some shots from opening night.

A great time! I love this city and hope to be back again soon :)
