This works, made for Glo'Art,is in general about the balancing each person has to fight for when in front of a change or a challenge.
Each object symbolizes a feeling contrasting with another one: fear (oystrich), strength (elephant), courage (stairs), fragility (glass), comfort (armchair), change (door), possibility (egg), stability (stone)…
It also represents, more specifically, the situation of an expatriate living in Portugal: the elephant represents strength, but also Portugal for its past as a colonist country, and the cage represents our mental prisons but is also a typical object in Portugal, hanging outside many houses as a decoration.
