A form of autobiography where the reader experiences the author’s loss and resilience through a dialogue between her poetry and photography.
This dialogue releases, rather than silences the aftermath of a stillbirth, and the trauma that it unearths, filtering dreams, along with a careful study of nature, as grief can sometimes make us natural scientists of our inner worlds.
The selfie in movement, reveals how air and water shape the movement of hair. Whereas the poetry revolves around an observation of life’s choices.
The work breathes through pain, ultimately regenerating in the power of acceptation and self-love.
The title H_air, comes from the idea that connects the power of hair and the freedom and freshness of air. Hair as keepers of our conscious and unconscious memories and beliefs, symbol of our identity in
constant change and an extension of our soul.
Air as cleanser of body and spirit, intermediary of our contact with nature and essence of the very first breath of life.
