Initially, the project was intended as an incantation of fear in an esthetic image, an attempt to build a set in which everyone can find their punctures – exhausting dreams, paranoia, anxiety. Extremely painful nowadays, even more visible in the context of cultural trauma and entity crisis.

In 2013 I survived a serious car accident. This misfortune brought about another. A tangled web of consequences meant that with time everything that seemed to have been tamed, became wild and returned in a new version. My own corporeality and pain become a source of images. Because of this, the series of works has become more personal, direct and substantial. Behind every photo there is a story that does not in fact need to be told. It's like an intimate contact, which closes past inexperience in present.
