Breaking the Vicious Circle, 1962. A female figure pulls apart a closed circle of "static knowledge" in the form of a knotted rope that encircles and constrains her, revealing a hidden world beneath her body. Flayed open at the chest by the strained effort of rupturing the "vicious circle," the figure exposes a world "beyond appearance" in which the bare branches of a wooden forest double as the veins and arteries of the human body.
