An autobiographical project made out of photographs. It follows the stereotypical development of the female artist influenced by the history of art, from classic to contemporary, and by the places where she has lived in her nomadic existence, from communist Russia, the former Yugoslavia at the beginning of the civil war there, Israel during the Second Intifada and Germany after its reunification, to her present but certainly not final destination: the Kingdom of The Netherlands.
