Publisher's Description

Originally published as a scarce exhibition catalog in 2016, now remastered in a small edition of 533 copies.

A book about life's imperfections and incompleteness. A lyric story in photographs and text.

The mountain shutting you in.
The path letting you escape.
Centuries of barbaric violence done to women.
I cry out — Bumblebee Mother Comfort Me!
I need the beauty and consolation she gives me In order to go on living.
Grass of Parnassia porcelain white flowers shine
A plant which fertilizes itself.
She whispers — search for the living spirits among the grass.
That's where the she-worlds opens.
Mother of the Bumblebee, comfort me
