"GRAVEYARD ROMANCE is a woman’s journey through death, life and the unknown.
GRAVEYARD ROMANCE is an ode to chaos, ecstasy, erotic death, hallucination and balancing on certain boundaries, it is an ode to iconic symbolism, sadness and feminism.
Que sera, sera.
Whatever will be, will be.
‘Now come...come..come with me
Let me be your guide
Let me be your host
Succumb to the unholy temptation
Bite the fruit, suck it all dry
Taste the everlasting darkness
And travel with me…
Travel with me...
Into the depths of beautiful insanity, soothing melancholy and sublime chaos’.
