The ever-present aura of scientific magic surrounds each and every one of us. It is the process of change that occurs in our earthly nature and beyond in the endless depth of the universe. These continuous developments represent the driving force for her desire to create. By playfully blending them with mythology, she summons glimpses into other realms of possibilities. Those arcane glances she refers to as her own Portals.

The artist constructed sets, elaborate in nature. She sculpted masks, incorporated prosthetics as well as special effect pieces and hand painted each individual item separately. Hereby the project aims to fuse photography, performance and other visual arts into one, ultimately resulting in an ongoing assembly of imaginary worlds. Yet the unknown remains strangely familiar.

Ana Bathe (born in Belgrade in 1987) is a multi-disciplinary autodidactic artist currently living and working in Berlin as a resident artist at Hotel Die Fabrik.
