Melting Away

My work explores self-projection and sexual liberation whilst being part of the LGBTQ+ community.
It exposes negative words and reclaims them for empowerment. In the video the word ‘shame’, made out of ice cubes, melts away leaving nothing but water and mirror pieces – highlighting reflection and mirror as the weapon through which one can find strength, acceptance, self-love and finally: empowerment.
