My work explore the concept of culture and how a culture can serve as a human manufacturing machine. A culture is a process and it is constantly in a state of transition and transformation. This cultural transformation defines who we are or what we are and who we will become or might become. We exist in a culture of fear, desperation and objectification.
We are fear to be judged, we are fear to not be loved or to love, we are fear of death, etc. Because of fear, there is desperation. We are desperate to live, desperate for happiness and hatred, desperate for hope, desperate to conquer and desperate to seek. We are obsessed with material things, money, power, greed, brands, cars, fashions, looks, and ourselves, etc. Our culture is in a constant process of “objectifying “ – both to ourselves, our surroundings and the people around us. Objectification is the final process of fear and desperation. A subject being reduced to an object merely stripping itself its value and meaning. The obsession with fear, desperation and objectification are the foundations of my work.
It is my exploration in attempt to define and redefine ourselves both as a subject, as an object, and its fusion & transition, and sometime the confusion between the two. My work aims to investigate the humane and the inhumane of these notions and its consequences within our culture. It is also an attempt to investigate the transitions of a culture as a process , as a machine, and culture as destruction & fragmentation.
The work also attempt to investigate and challenge us to question our existence as a subject-object, the meaning of cultural transformation and identity, our anger, our fear, our screams, our hope, our madness, our behavior and eventually, our destiny. Furthermore, it is also an attempt to question hope in a hopelessness culture. These notions are explored through the process of deconstruction and reconstruction, the disintegration of time and spatial layers, and the re-creation of self… the no-self.
