Born as a girl in a man’s world, I was a disappointment to my grandfather and father longing for a boy to carry their bloodline forward.

CATHARSIS: A DEPARTURE FROM LABYRINTH is an attempt to confront my existence in the family with ostracism, to fathom the traumatic experiences of the past in hope to cleanse the doors of perception.

In a broader scene, it accuses patriarchal society in which men despise and treat women as a tool of procreation.
