Dascha Esselius Czech republic / Sweden
I am a multidisciplinary artist. My artwork consists of films, photographs, paintings, sculptures, public art and video installations. I strongly believe in the power of the visual language which moves me and is starting point for all my work. I use the ambiguity of perception to load the objective reality with extended meanings in the field of tension between the fantastic and the ordinary. I often relate to different art historical periods and to them connected symbols which I fill with parallel meanings. That is my way of maintaining a dialogue with artists who have lived before me. The guiding principle I follow is the ambiguity. I want the audience to open their minds and approach my works as if they were projection screens for their own inner worlds and personal stories.
