While on the one hand we tend to prioritise our actions according to the expectations of society, on the other hand to be an individual, we need free spaces. Yet, in order to find a way to be a free individual, most of the time we ignore our inner voice and look for the solutions the main structure, the source of our conditioned behaviors propose.
Mostly stuck in this dilemma, the artist occasionally points it out in his works, whereas he sometimes chooses to reflect what this state triggers, while enjoying in his very own and imaginary free space that he created when he was a kid.
