Artist’s book. Published Nicosia, Cyprus, 2019.
Limited edition of 100, numbered, dated + signed by the artist.

Unfolding in a selection of entries from personal journals, Cyprusbound explores lived experiences of migration, relocation and displacement. Grappling with errantry and exile, distance and displacement, wonderment and regret, it becomes an attempt to processes decisions, mistakes and sordid truths for a young adult who questions limits between free agency and de facto circimstances established by powers at play. Through nuanced, often intertwined encounters of hostility and aggression, expectation combats disenfranchisement, motivation endures resistance and exhaustion gives way to radical rethinkings of self - agency.

The series of performance readings planned to launch the project have been postponed with the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic.
