Author of My Current Condition (detail) | Mixed media installation: books |

A self-portrait of personal events is the dominant theme of my confessional art. Originating from my childhood, Author of My Current Condition is a retrospective of trauma, betrayal, truth in memory, and identity. An installation of past personal experiences is interpreted with evidence of conflicting memories to be read and decoded. Employing archetypal symbols charged with sexuality and narrative, the relationship and language between my objects and colors reconstruct the past. White books on the floor shaped as cairns, together with everyday objects and applied text, speak as cyphers for memories and emotions.
