"Where do I end when at the beginning of an end you are?"

Dimensions: 665 x 235 cm

Materials: oil, acrylic and markers on canvas

Description: 37 drawn figures, which vary between shadows and human figures. The canvas is stretched on the wall, perpendicular to and touching the floor. Although the subject has managed to infiltrate the borders of a world she was once trapped in, yet she has become part of a wall that is part of a room that is part of a building and so on…The subject’s dreams and hopes for liberation have only led her to a larger confinement, where the borders are still erected, yet are further away. A work that echoes my own uncertainty and hesitancy towards my very own desires, it is an unresolved space
