around a bench that is situated on a famous promenade, in an idyllic ambient with a beautiful view, a cage is set

a passer-by can freely open the door, enter and sit on the bench

there is a lock inside the cage

a person in the cage can willfully lock himself/herself inside, imprison and isolate himself/herself

the work questions the relationship of freedom and captivity, asks the question of who is freer, the person in prison or the one outside of it

the question of personal freedom in the context of social norms, rules and laws

being the prisoner of our own or imposed decisions, limits and perspectives
