Antas creates something out of almost nothing, with poetic and intimate results. Dust, condensation, clouds and snow have been used as drawing materials to create video or photographic work. These poetic and intimate pieces are mesmerising and ultimately satisfying, functioning as small performances which have been captured. Antas frequently refers to journeys which remain in transit, never arriving, with the viewer as the passenger. Beginnings and endings intermingle so that finally we must turn away, the journey unresolved.
