The short song about white stone

on the bottom of the black river

"Tanka – is a poetry, the roots of which are in teh human heart". 

Ki-no Tsurayuki.


The series is made in a five-line poetic form, where each work is a line of particular poem.

Poetic language is "the phisics" of my art creation, "the body of my soul", where my works are my personal vocabulary.

The series "Tanka" – is a visual song. The form, inner content, the way of perfoming – together make nessesary intonation to express my short story; the methaphor which I invite to read/to hear using your personal inner vocabulary or your open heart.
