Mimosa Pudica. A Book of Promises and Consolations
Materials: textile book, hand embroidery
This book is dedicated to you. The one who has ever heard "I would never have become such a tolerant." Heard from others or from youself. Have you ever thought of principles? Good, right. With the preservation of borders and self-esteem. And then did not find the strength to observe them, to be consistent and resolute, but only squeezed when these boundaries of the unacceptable collapsed? But others remained as consolation, or new ones were re-invented, and you remained, in the space of doubts and fears.
In this book there are no answers and recipes. Her non-ideal, like this life, pages are created only to comfort and embrace.
