Antidote

Antidote is a surreal collection of characters and landscapes which all encompass the theme of 'an antidote to life's monotony and mundanity'.

Each character tries to find their own antidote with different means, while the central heroine travels forward, forever moving along, looking for an antidote of her own.

The collection deals with themes of depression, represented in part with the rope dress the heroine wears. The dress drags and weighs her down until it is transformed into a part of herself and is worn close to her body no longer holding her back.
