INTERNAL SHIELD, 2018. Velvet, cotton string, pins. Dimensions: 4m x 3.2m.
Internal Shield forms an imposing fabric structure made of blue velvet, red string and hundreds of sharp pins, painstakingly arranged into small floret-like shapes, ready to burst at any moment.
Symbolically engaging with dichotomies of appearance and concealment, fierceness and fragility, Internal Shield explores the interconnected concepts of psychological defence mechanisms and hidden anxieties.
