Collage allows my imagination to play with combinations of materials such as paper, cloth and stones with pencil and paint. All the elements and images brought into the collage previously existed in separate places. They are unified into one visual piece but not at random. Each piece is carefully positioned. This unification of diversity corresponds to my outlook and philosophy on life, i.e. combining rather than separating, bringing people and cultures together.
DESSA is well known not only for her projects combining music and visual art, including the creation of « Transoundart » but also for her research concerning artistic expression for collective memory.
