Liberation from the Fear of Pain (2019)
Central Saint Martins
I intend to explore the impact of religion by looking at the physical boundaries placed on the body as well as the social limitations that constrict the body’s behaviour. I am interested in how punitive religious moralities shape and control society through the element of fear, hence presenting women as natural sinners. I wanted to explore the instinct of self-destruction that such dogmatic ideologies may create as a way to liberate the mind from existential anxieties.
