Most of us comply what other people expect of us in our life - the way we look, talk, behave - without truly expressing who we really are. Most people choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality, deep down inside, we all scream out loud to get out of the box but we cannot. Could we?
This work portraits the internal struggle people, especially women, experience everyday. Professional, social, and sexual expectations put us in an invisible cage and make us conform, leaving us feeling torn. Ironically, we often are the ones who pull our hair out. On the outside, we force ourselves to keep cool; on the inside, we ignore the importance of connecting to our true identity, letting our soul silently suffer.
This piece of work was exhibited in Fundació Vila Casas, Barcelona, until the end of 2018.
