The aim of the exhibition is to visualize mental instability and its burden. Activity refers to the inner wear, which is revealed by covering, repairing and shaping the outer shell – we shape ourselves like a loaded sculpture. The artist explores how to visualize the uncomfortable burden that we carry on our shoulders and that has taken on a functional and deceptive role in our daily lives.
