"Getting lost finding the way" is an investigation of relation of different kind of spaces and its influence on one another.

There is a personal, inner space and the impersonal, collective, outer space; there is the inner perception of oneself and outer picture that is unconsciously projected into the world. An instinctual imperative of progress results in permanent movement, relocation and reprocessing in terms of personal alteration.

In this work the hermetical, almost cubical construction of each situation, the affinity of unrelated incidents, how different circumstances resemble each other and the seamless conjunctions between them all impart the impression that the world is a revolving stage, a closed circuit. In the process of perpetual motion there are no apparent options, no freely-made decisions, no way out.

There is no interior or exterior, everything is interlaced, the elements aren't all analogous parts of a bigger scheme, but seem to be nested in one another. A never-ending journey to reach the outer shell is taking place, as we search for the final Russian doll.

The location is of no importance. Rather, it's this archetypal state of mind, a permanent state of estrangement.
