This great female figure remember us Kara’s best known artwork silhouttes. Kara’s figures are often hard and ambiguous; it’s like a short of perceptive game with the viewer. She tell us a story of violance and contradictions. Her language is directed and effective. She invite us to reflect about history and about human’s behavior.
