“The Right Hand”
2016 - 2019

#vulnerability #chronic-illness #testimony #art
When I was 23 years old I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
It affected mostly my hands.
In 2016 I had to have my first hand-surgery due losing range of movement. My right hand was the first to go and 2017 the left one.

I am an artist.

I work with my hands.

These body of works showned in an exhibition at the Helmhaus Zurich were developed during the years of recovery and healing process, 2016 - 2019

The whole “after-surgery” phase shifted perspectives, it was a healing process.
