ANNA TIHANYI'S NEW PROJECT - A WOMAN'S CHAMBER
NEW PROJECT - "A WOMAN'S CHAMBER"
“A woman’s chamber” talks about the female
psyche, roles and identity issues, inner games and outer masks, and the change that
is necessary for us in order to grow.
With this series Anna is making an attempt to put down these grown out personalities and liberate the others by talking about current, relevant and common feminine situations and
characters founded on her own fears and disappointments. Visualizing transmission she uses death as a symbol, and the acts of assassination show the courage to face our own obstacles in order to reach the creator that exist within each of us.
