Karlien De Villiers, with her bizarre characters who seem to come from the world of comics, pushes us to reflect on problems that are always present in our society with a biting irony.
The two spouses sit on a Procrustean bed, a representation of the tormenting situation they are experiencing and of the attempt, coming from society but perhaps also from the partner, to reduce themselves to a single model, a single way of acting and thinking, eliminating their own personal peculiarities.
