Let me be

Let me be‘The public and the private worlds are inseparably connected… the tyrannies and the servilities of one are the tyrannies and the servilities of the other’ (Virginia Woolf)

Part One

Tonya Alexandri – August, 2013

‘We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time’ T.S. Elliot

Let me be includes drawings that I had made, over a short period of time, as part of processing extremely painful emotions and material. It was a first attempt to find my voice, to break the silence and to create a small crack in the taboo of seriously discussing abuse and human right violations in a country, where silence and secrecy pretty much surround issues like childhood abuse, discrimination based on political beliefs, racism, torture and other violations of rights.
