What touched her particularly was the fact that, after the explosion, a black rain came down. Her diptych “Black Rain” was inspired by this apocalyptic phenomenon. In her studio she created an installation, consisting of a monumental background she painted, within which she situated a three-dimensional bamboo construction with black cloths. In this setting she placed herself as a performer. The diptych “Black Rain” is a photographical registration in which performance, painting and a spatial construction go together.
