“I first started working on this series in 2010 and have continued to elaborate on it over the years. It is a very autobiographic series that I directed and photographed, working with a model to reenact sentiments I was feeling at the time. I had suffered from a devastating break up, a relationship that ended with lies, cheating and betrayal. I went from being a strong confident woman to being totally broken and it took me years to recover. This series tells that story. I worked with a model was a great actress and shot the photographs and videos at the same time. The post-production on the series was extensive. The video art version premiered at Art Basel Miami in 2010 and most of the photographs I only recently started working on again, many of which are premiering for the first time in this exhibit. This series really tells the story not just of my tragic breakup but that of many women who have been abused and betrayed by the people they love, and how difficult it can be to process those emotions. I am really looking forward to the original choreography by Bryn Cohn + Artists inspired by the series. I will be seeing it for the first time along with the audience on November 15th!” Indira Cesarine
