Ex Partner

I carry my losses like they’ve always belonged to me*. Or maybe from the moment I became my own ex partner.

Following a series of suicides and fatal accidents within my circle of friends and acquaintances, I found myself faced with the non-negotiable information about their deaths and the abrupt ending of all relations I had with each of them. Reflecting on the state of being stuck between facts and disbelief and the effect that these events had on my understanding of social and personal identity, “Ex Partner” serves as a continuation of the conversations which suddenly ended and as an attempt to leave behind parts of myself in order to make peace with the situation. Processing everything means coming out of the liminal without apprehension or forgetfulness.
