Possession, the desire to possess, the captivity by something or someone, are all invisible chains that have locked man from within. Material or spiritual, it does not matter. The rope is the rope.

In this work, I have tried to create an imaginary atmosphere to represent the concept of the desire for liberation. I have imagined a girl is hanging on the wall like a puppet who is always moved by the hands of another human being and has no choice but to still dream of liberation. Maybe one day, she can free herself from other hands like a wooden doll that can be seen in the picture with torn ropes hanging from the hand.
