What comes first is: Freedom
The journey to freedom starts with one step. Nelson Mandela’s journey to freedom was a long walk. The root of my work is the concept of freedom and how the walk to freedom is often distressing, leading to bloodshed, sweat and tears. The experience towards freedom is also very enlightening, much like reading a book. I learnt that freedom doesn’t exist so, I aimed to create a symbolic starting point of my own sense of freedom in my life.
