"Traps" is a series of GIF works I have been making since 2017, which feature a female character in various traps. A trap is a device meant to catch and capture, whether it is a secret trap, a bait, decoy or a fraud the victim does not know it fell in it until it's too late.
My traps are exaggerated caricatures based on cartoons, movies and pop culture (a huge bear trap, a secret trap door, quicksand, etc) and they stand for feelings of anxiety, insecurity, isolation, alienation. The loop creates a surreal effect of the character being stuck in the trap forever with no possibility of escape, however she is aware of the danger and is successfully avoiding it, living with it. The trap is in a similar position because despite the infinite attempts it fails to fulfill its function. So the trap and the character exist in a stalemate.
