Cerberus is a 3 headed monster that, in greek and roman mythology, guards the gates to hell – thus preventing the living from entering & the shadows from escaping. Standing if front of this guard (finally in the spotlight) the public is confronted with their own frightening shadows, split between the desire to contemplate the work of art and the need to escape from their own distress. This installation helps to reveal our nightly anxieties, that come to life with the help of this monstrous soldier.
