All you can(‘)t leave behind

All you can(‘)t leave behind

Year: 2011 | 225×200 cm | recycled jute from Pakistan/ Brasil/ India, velvet, silk

A deep wound, – not bleeding, but being ‘nurtured’ by the veins that are running into it. This work explores the difficulty of letting go and of the resulting pain and suffering. Detached from reality, emotional distress has become a theatre in which old pain is being restaged, creating an endless cycle of suffering.
But there is also another possible outcome : these surface wounds can become the bearer of opportunity and hopefully result in disburdening one’s emotional baggage, allowing us to walk on light-footed.
