Possession, the desire to possess, the captivity by something or someone, are all invisible chains that have locked man from within. Material and spiritual no matter what. The rope is the rope and any clause is anti-liberty.

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 always moved by the hands of another human being and has no choice but to still dream of liberation and 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.
