”The entire exhibition works with and in the subconscious. Our culture flatly denies any deeper contact with our subconscious, with intuition and children’s play, certain aspects of which have been forbidden as they have been deemed cruel or immoral. Children today often grow up with norms and expectations of a kind that frighten them and leave them only half a person since they aren’t allowed to keep both their angels and their demons, or get a chance to be themselves on their own terms. Everything in the mind has to be allowed to move freely, and it is precisely when part of its contents are censored that the disturbances begin. I feel that many conflicts and incidents of exploitation are born out of a strictly controlled subconscious. When we instead feel secure having all facets of ourselves flowing freely, this part of ourselves becomes an inexhaustible source of ideas and impulses”
