"I am interested in the characteristics of dysfunctional behaviour and relationships, taking place both in the domestic and professional arenas. The emotional responses arising from a culture of hierarchy, where authority is respected and accepted, not questioned and never challenged. Repressed anger reduced to obedience, submission and passive adaptation habituate the private rooms where longing and melancholia rules. Coping mechanisms provide a protective layer for maintaining human functionality in crisis, but when internalised becomes the norm, almost a personal characteristic, the tool becomes the objective, the dysfunctional becomes functional creating a barrier hindering change."
