Danika’s work probes at the intersection of the interesting and the mundane, the shocking and the acceptable. They are all charged by spontaneity in conception and design. “I woke up and saw this naked man sleeping on the mattress… He laid there on his back. I started drawing him on paper with a pen and it was over. Then at Space 118, I placed them on the floor and poured blue ink on it. Repeated the same ritual at the Vino Arts Festival with wine- purple colour.”
