Echo

Created by South African artist, Echo focuses on women. Every woman has an individual story to tell, which is intertwined within the group and echos with each other. Through a feminine perspective, the work expounds on the perceptions and experiences of changes in life. Women’s lives not only reveal similar struggles, but are also calls for self-expression and solidarity in a greater sense.

Cage Birds

Our daily life is filled with invisible cages, so we feel trapped in cages by ourselves and others. Faced with the protection provided by the cage, are we willing to give up and seek for freedom? People often fail or cannot express love on account of personal obstacles and fears. Cage Birds gains insights into the bondage and expression for love by means of the dance of freedom.
