Statement: “Cornered” 2015-2016. Photography, Performance.
This art work explores the experience of being in the middle of a beautiful nowhere, yet remaining trapped in a box that has been created by either society or ourselves. It explores the idea of how the whole of existence is truly floating in a beautiful nowhere, an infinite space. But the human mind creates limitations that end up manifesting into fears restricting one to break free and simply be. If one could only realize that outside of the box there is nothing, and its a beautiful nothing to be enjoyed.
