“chamberworks” the title which the artist gives her work represents also the “Leitmotiv” of her work and through the context of private performance (chamberworks) its  significance is effectively doubled.

Emphasis is given to the intimacy of locus, artist / performer and audience. Within this frame a slow, silent, but vital affinity with history in terms of space and time begins manifested as a form of (art) happening.

…. “innumerable fields of innumerable images” are, layer by layer revealed  to form a “bridge of communication between herself and the audience…..”.
