Silent fear

Silence definition: Any absence of sound, communication or hearing. Silence is also used as total communication, in reference to nonverbal communication.

In an empty interior, where fear can nestle and unfold undisturbed, various miniature-sized installations have been created. At the centre stands a small piece of meat – representing fear.

“fear has many faces. or no face at all.”
