Metaphorically, Hertug depicts a subject that highlights elements of surrealism, humans represented in sheep underpinned by complex and personal stories. Why is that? Because it’s an allusion to social conformism. The gender identity and gender expression “X” become a normality who promote “equality” of people but erases social diversity. In reality, people have no more guides, this morning you can be a man, tomorrow you can be “X” gender because of #metoo. Bombarded by truncated information, we no longer have the freedom; we all follow, like a flock of sheep, the same path.
