Hanging My Nails to Dry
In 2023, I was invited by Kollection Kitch to participate in 'The Politics of Polishing', an exhibition that focused on the significance of nails in society.

For my work, I turned my attention to my relationship with my nails.
I love painting my nails but when I have to wait for them to dry, I become restless.

"What if I could cut my hands off and hang them so my nails could dry? If I did it, I wouldn't have to waste my precious time."
This absurd thought signalled the unhealthy mentality of a workaholic.
