Inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’, Yel(low) explores obsession, escapism, manipulation and deconstruction.

It is all too easy to become obsessed with avoiding reality, our solution is often to find comfort in distractions. Distractions become our crutch; they support us and give us somewhere to direct our focus.

Fuelled by personal experience and translations of ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’, Yel(low) explores the manic isolation that arises from obsessive distraction. How can we find refuge in ourselves if we are actively ignoring what is beneath our surface?
