"I have always been conspicuous, never fitted into the system. My natural habitat is rebellion, thinking outside the box, living without pigeonholes and templates. My paintings show a way of letting go - of escaping, against the constraints of society, whatever its nature. I paint the moment of 'letting go', it is the moment that no one takes away from me, where I have no rules to follow and make my own rules - namely none. I live according to my own dogma. This is the moment that everyone wishes for too much and gets only too rarely. It is a space in which one can be weightless. Letting go, surrendering completely to lightness. It is about the liberation of one's own passion.
Stay soft - The sculptural installation by Katalina Koss is a tribute to the diverse and transformative qualities of being a woman in today's society. The wall sculpture depicts colourful examples of femininity and tells stories of female character and ever-evolving beauty.
The video installation is by creative director and photographer Yolanda Ng and reflects the pressures society puts on women and how these expectations can be poisoned on social media. Staged with unrealistic perfection of ubiquitous beauty standards and mannerisms, this video shows how femininity can be manipulated even in today's society.
Each side of this room reflects the reality and unrealistic challenges of our modern world.
