With the art figure MADAME HUMTATA, Christine immerses herself in the world of performance and starts experimenting with costume and stage design. In working with various materials from plastic bags, newspaper paper, she creates individual costumes and gives the figure MADAME HUMTATA, her own fashionable identity. Her interest in fashion and design leads her to photographic experiments in which the overall work of art from costume, figure, space and theme creates its own world.
