Ego-Trap at Hinterland gallery

The term ‘Ego Trap’ refers to the structures in one’s mind, which entangle consciousness. Although ego is often perceived as an embodiment of one’s being, it is in fact, a cage within which our true nature is trapped. In these series, I’m trying to do self- psychoanalysis in order to define myself; as well as the mutual relationship of the self and ego. In other words, this series is an analysis of my psychological behaviors, which have a tendency toward transcendental realms and strongly challenge my ego in terms of surpassing the ego trap.
