My performance uses my hands as the main means of expression. The reason for the involvement of hands in my art is an event from the past. When I was a child, my mother told me that my hands are longer than anyone else's, they reminded her of an artist's hands. Then I decided to become an artist when I grew up. I have a habit of watching my hands move, especially when making art, and passing it through my hands.
