The events in our childhood shaped us as the human beings we are today. Other people’s traumas inevitably affect us and Sharing the weight of their pain can lead us to blame them and us as well. To protect ourselves we create barriers to filter the outside world pain. During this process, we generate an internal fight in ourselves. A new beginning can be achieved when we stop blaming and instead we start caring. Embracing the trauma and facing it from a different perspective will make it disappear or simply change form, leading us to a new life.
COCOON is a solo included in my “WALKING WOUNDED SERIES”, different works in which I investigated real stories of traumas that changed forever the everyday life of common people. The body stores all the past memories, trying to protect us from society, but life presents us situations where hiding is not an option. At that moment, we are vulnerable; covered with clothes, a second skin incapable of disguising our present and past.
