In 2013 with the creation of this alienated, outsider (and also an artist) Vera Nimova – a deeply wished action – has been finally realized. It wasn’t a sudden but important gesture with a lot of hesitation and agonization behind. The creation and the usage of a persona calls a fresh look: also it is a new, more conceptual perspective and it offers a comfortable position – invisibility or rather a moral independence – for the author. Why is this capital? The key is the more or less constant pressure what plays an important role in the author’s artistic and non-artistic behavior.

“….that he is gripped by a deeply rooted fear.

…a deeply rooted fear.”

-or a disrupted parental care – 

“He needs to feel a bond, which requires neither love nor reason — and he finds it in the symbiotic relationship,

I wanted to understand and to be able to define the limits of objectivity in storytelling and even if it’s a general approach I was (and still I am) curious  how to build up a

 

 

transparent wall of gel to communicate – and also self-defend – through that. To generalize feelings, pain, and anxiety.  It was an interesting and great experiment for self-liberation.
