In the self portraits of the series "Don't Look At Me", the artist describes her desire to be in a place where she is not really in. In doing so, her figures that have turned their backs to the audience stand in opposition to the desire to be seen. And she aims to create a perception on space different than the everyday reality. The objects in order and disorder evoke the feeling of a happened or a not yet experienced occurent.
