Happy people in my town
In today’s world, everything is evolving so fast. Digital reality and artificial intelligence are taking over our lives and reducing our freedom, our free spaces.
Many people are finding it difficult to manage in this new reality, and emotional and psychological problems are becoming more common. To cope with all this pressure, a lot of us, including young children, are turning to prescribed medication, hoping for an easy way out. Our society is becoming more and more unhappy, as we get stuck in a vicious circle we can’t get out of.
Through the language of my art, I try to confront people with reality, show them the situation and speak about the unspoken. I believe that awareness is the first step to changing anything in this world, and to creating more free space.
The exhibition 50x50x50 at the Fortress of Franzensfeste is open until September 8th, 2019. Happy to see you!
