Authority, self-attributed. On exploring the quotidian dialectic between the artist, his environment and the unnatural stupidity of society. - ongoing
How do societal deformities manifest themselves both in individuals and as a collective? How deeply embedded are these defects in the fabric of our society? Is the individual selfishness a mirror of the collective or is it that the collective fabric has rotten exposing these putrid values? At what point can or should one start to point fingers?
On this ongoing project, the artist questions the daily relations within a society while trying to make some sense of his own role. How society is steered by a shapeless entity called authority that most often manifests itself through corrupted human nature, broken human relationships, moral and religious codes. In this work, the artist self-attributes the authority to conclude, admit, deny, approve, reject, support or oppose. Everything is brought to question, from the most insignificant freedoms to politics, religion and soccer.
