Artist’s Statement

The thick obscurity of the obsolete beliefs and the incomplete perception of the humans, fabricate a wall of ignorance to stand against the primary purpose of the nature, the creation. The unidentified gender is beyond the limitation of this wall. In the eye of the wall makers, they are the monster who is out there to demolish this obsolete wall and annihilate their reservoir of fanaticism, whereas, they only want their one congenital birthright, the desire for the sex they bear inside but not outside.
