Circumambulations (I have been circling for a thousand years) - an exhibition with old and new work by the artist that all have a common denominator in the sign of the circle and rotation, which recur as fundamental invocations in her work. She constructs a spatial mind map to tie together the traces that lead to the latest works, models of circular house bodies that can stand for a multifaceted relationship with the body, being and the constant transformation of an evasive language of the ineffable.
