How do art forms play as vent to our psychic content? Use content fro Aunt Jennifer's tiger to support your answer ?/

Art can be a good platform to vent our ‘psychic content’. Any creative form of art, be it dancing, painting, theatre, sewing, embroidering, etc., helps a person to sooth his/her mental insecurities and tensions, and to express the pent up emotions. People like Aunt Jennifer, who are dominated and live in utter fear, get a chance to live an alternative life which has been denied to them. The traits that could be associated with the tigers she embroidered were, ironically, opposite to her own self. She embroidered fierce, proud, confident tigers that were prancing on the screen. These symbolise her secret yearning for power and freedom. Thus, she formulated a way to live an idealistic life through her art.
