In their work titled The Punishment, after making a cut on their arm, the artist stands on one foot letting their blood drain slowly until it stops.

The Punishment wanders in our collective memory on a quest for power dynamics and crime, aiming to explore the kinship between weakness and power, punishment and shame, crime and testimony, and to navigate the borders between punishment and personal shame, personal punishment and social shame.
