The book, I Exist, was conceived during a year I spent in Poland. It is contemplation on one’s identity and existence, transience and repetitive elements in life. Multiplied silhouettes are combined with handwritten words, drawings, leaves and ephemera found in Warsaw, and texts are a fragmented resume and lists of my artist’s books.
