She is an artist with a conceptual pedigree. She mainly deals with spoken performance. During her speeches, she tells stories from the borderline of art and ordinary life, paying attention to the definitional ambiguity of the difference between them. She maintains a distanced attitude towards any attempts to define art, thus escaping the standard expectations of interpretation.
