This work is a dialogue and an exploration with my personal shadow. The antithesis of the strict framework and the organic forms depict our social behavior, our sentiments though our real self.
Shadow is a psychological term for everything we can’t see in ourselves. From our early age we adjust our behavior to gratify our needs and learn to adapt to the external world. As we grow up we condition ourselves to keep all the unaccepted parts of us outside our conscious awareness, though, we drag them ‘behind us’ all the time in our subconscious.
This repression of unwanted parts creates what psychologist Carl Jung called the personal shadow. ‘There is no light without shadow and no psychic wholeness without imperfection’ *
