Two years ago Ines felt the first signs that something was wrong with her body. She started to lose pounds fast, they moved harder, and the pain began. After months spent first in Split and then in Zagreb hospital during which the doctors tried to find cause and response in a series of painful and unpleasant searches. Unfortunately, that did not happen and Ines from the hospital was released only with a list of symptoms they said could be signs of some unknown autoimmune disease. Treatment is a corticosteroid, a drug that is not really because it only squeezes the symptoms and in turn generates more harm than good. Despite the illness, Inesina’s passion for photography did not eradicate and through the project “In and about pain” through photography and text she conveyed the experiences of patients, nurses and doctors about pain ..
During the next couple of months, Ines is on therapy with Dr. Katarina Dujmović, who works in bioresonance, magnet, oxygen and natural preparations. However, it is a rather expensive therapy that Ines, currently unable to work and finance his own recovery, can not settle for himself.
After completing her university education, Ines Kotarac wrote about culture in Vjesnik and Vijenac, on the online portals Queer.hr and Voxfeminae.net and collaborated on several lexicographic and terminological projects. His journalistic and later artistic work influenced and enriched our lives through words and images, professionally and personally. That’s why we are solid and help Ines overcome the challenges ahead.
