“I was in a stressful situation myself and I wanted to leave. I wanted to break off my relationship and met with a lot of resistance. I didn’t know how to make it clear to him. I discussed it with a friend and he told me: If you want him to understand it, you have to try to tell it in different ways. And I did – I fought. I froze. I fled. ‘
Three reactions, three singles that form one EP. Rotterdam based producer Zophieq offers the second part of a trilogy. Fight, flee, freeze.
“I knew he could hurt me. Even though there was no evidence. It was a gut feeling that said something was wrong. I felt so small when I was with him. He had to be dangerous, manipulative even. But there was no evidence…until I realized I didn’t need any evidence at all. I didn’t have to go fight him if I disagreed with him. I could just hear his arguments, see the inequality of our relationships and trust my gut feeling.”
An examination of ‘why’. An examination of ‘why-not’. An ever entangled ‘mess’ of internal struggles, coping with the fairy-tales of desired relations – muddy the waters of a reality that never, ever was. The clarity that doesn’t come with love and affection. A clarity that seems to dissipate for a while, when comfort of routine, comes to play.
A fight of surprises are written down and expressed in Zophieq’s unadulterated art.
A one by one, frame of existential vulgarity, of inner heart and mind – hung on the wall for that – examination.
