Public work


A work in two parts embracing the idea of liberation and the freedom to depart, to leave the conformity of a provided culture, to fly away, travel solo and confront the unfamiliar. The pioneer adventurer Ella Maillart, born 1903, wrote: You do not travel if you are afraid of the unknown. You travel for the unknown that reveals you with yourself.

The freedom to depart from the familiar world has a connotation in the very idea and highest intention of art: To dismiss conventional routines, produce new perspectives and broaden human awareness.
