“The mise en scene is set. An improvised, fragile and vulnerable palace was constructed, a place within a place. This precarious sanctuary represents the home, the familiar. A comfort zone that is the peace within to be protected and fought for to the bitter end.
This cathartic ritual is here photographed as evidence and was documented within a fragment of time one dark Berlin evening. The aim was not to win but to protect and purge a terrible affliction from the body and take a shaky step into a more confident future.”
