The Entrapment of the Mind
Krla’s current body of work is entitled "The Entrapment of the Mind.” It deals with the problems of stereotypes an individual suffers within society. Krla chose mental health as the subject of her project to allow her to voice a concern about patronizing attitudes from family, friends and colleagues. Through her work, Krla depictsa metaphorical boundary of being mentally trapped within oneself, with each other, and with surroundings caused by social stigmas. Krla intends to weave her findings into a contemporary investigation and depiction of the human struggle to care, be caring and maintain a sense of self within societal norms. The focus of Krla’s project is to directly open a dialogue on the consequences of subjective feelings of stigma in individual lives. Her work is part of any anti-stigma campaign intended to bring attention to the problems with the mental health services available to those who need it.
