Cold Turkey

2015 - 2018

'Fall', 40x40cm Inkjet print on archival paper, Edition 3+1a.p.

Cold Turkey
refers to the unpleasant state that addicts experience when they suddenly stop taking a substance. The book explores this experience through an arduous process that aims at the search for light, the way out to a personal redemption.

Η φράση Cold Turkey αναφέρεται στη δυσάρεστη κατάσταση που βιώνουν οι εθισμένοι σε εξαρτησιογόνες ουσίες όταν ξαφνικά διακόπτουν τη λήψη τους. Το βιβλίο διερευνά αυτή την εμπειρία μέσα από μια επίπονη πορεία που στόχο έχει την αναζήτηση του φωτός, τη λύτρωση, τη διέξοδο σε μια προσωπική κάθαρση.
