I am an artist who trains skating in her spare time. Who we are is to some extent a resultant of a certain potential of who we could have been. In the Olympic Charmer project I reverse the proportion and make skating the most important of the life roles, remembering that in art I can be everything I want. I create an alter ego, a winning machine which does not know the taste of losing. Olympic Charmer is a formally complex project providing for a far-reaching hoax. Us-ing the photomontage techniques, I appropriate the successes of favourite skating stars, I appear on posters, covers of archival magazines dripping with medals, those awarded to me by someone and those awarded to me by myself. The real successes achieved in amateur competitions gradually give way to trophies from the most important sports events, with the collection being concluded with the Olympic gold. There is no place, time or nationality in this project. I am a total champion. All successes are mine.
