A poisoned dress or limits of gratitude for hospitality is a story based on my personal experience of living after the treason of my husband with my friend. This project is a restorative justice which reformate my pain from betrayal in a new experience. It’s a way to express aggression in a legitimate way. Injury is a collision with one’s own instability. Treason has become a catalyst for changes in photographic optics. Project documents volatility.
A poisoned dress is a wedding gift from a married woman to her rival. Medea poisoned Glaucus and her father by sending them a mantle and diadem soaked with poison. The famous Russian poet Nikolai Gumilev wrote the tragedy “A poisoned dress” in 1917 in Paris and ended it in 1918 in London. Experiencing problems in relation to his lover Anna Akhmatova, Gumilev tried several times to commit suicide.
