Naked Self-Portrait, 2015, 4:20
A self critcal look about myself and the dark thoughts/shadows I have inside me. Nobody is free from moments of intolerance actions or superior ideas against others. Only if I/we realize that, then I/we might be able to cross the borders between us. What matters then, color, or race. If we all take off and let fall our status, beliefs, ideologies just like clothes, then I/we might discover we are all still equally in our nakedness and vulnerability.
