extrication (2019)

Extrication is a mixed media installation comprising a video and audio on loop and the wooden staircase covered with concrete. The word extrication means to release and set something free from entanglement or difficulty. In this work, it refers to the process of releasing my life from all the excessive pressure, stress and burden. The video shows a girl walking towards the staircase with a blindfold, she slowly walks up to the stairs and when she reached the top, she hesitated for a second then jumped down, and it is looped again. It was in actuality a truthful portrayal of the unending struggle, contradiction, and confusion in my inner world.
