When I was a little boy, I used to like hiding in a quiet and isolated area. It could be under a desk, in the corner of a balcony, or inside a closet. Whenever I inhabited certain private spaces, it gave me a feeling of security. I believe that feeling is derived from a homing instinct which causes animals to go back to their primal territory.
I believe human beings have an inherent longing for a place like a womb in that it once provided us with a comfortable, quiet, and safe place as well as nutrition before we were born. For this series titled "Places to Hide," I intended to project this human desire for an enclosed area by placing naked bodies in those tiny spots, suggesting the idea of human animals hiding inside the womb in urban cities.
