The work F20.5 depicts the confrontation of my own childhood, during which my father suffered from residual schizophrenia.
Through the reconstruction of my own past and reinterpretation of father’s visual hallucinations, I am staging situations in which I place myself and my twin sisters in order to acknowledge and show the influence the illness had on the entire family.
I use photography as a therapeutic instrument, to relive and accept, from a distance, powerful experiences and memories, portray and transform them and, in this way, to get to know myself anew.
The series is master’s degree work at the Academy of Dramatic Art under the mentorship of professors Darije Petković and Jelena Blagović.
