Gateway consists of a paper archway with drawings on all sides. Notably, under the arch of the door, there are two caryatid frogs carrying a stone. In an unexpected moment, the wall splits, revealing a palimpsest that alludes to deeper and more unsettling layers beneath the surface. This contrast with the more delicate images seen elsewhere invites reflection on the complexities of life experiences and the presence of hidden layers beneath the surface.
