Trapped no. 3 (boy in a container)
A young boy in a transparent container is fighting endlessly against the waves. Although he will never defeat them, his battle remains tireless end endless.
The representation of psychological states by means of metaphorical images is the topic of the video-sculptures in the Trapped series.
They focus in particular on a feeling of mental imprisonment. Narrow spaces, edged metal containers and iron windows form the framework, the prison. Within these restricting limits the figures move under or above the viewer. The sense of being trapped in your own skin, experiencing your own limits and the constant repetition of the same psychological processes are the recurring manifestations of this mental imprisonment.
