Holidays in Venus, 2018
The artist´s comment on the artwork:
“Humans as finite beings in space and time horizon is the material of this artwork. No matter how hard we try, we can not run away from stuff. We can’t seem to run from the material in this world. When we leave the confines of our homes, all roads seem to lead to stores and mega malls filled with “stuff” that we are told we all “need”. I find myself drowning in such excess. I feel like I´m lurked upon by the masses in their multicolor forms. These beings seek to be consumed with their eyes, whole and all at once. And how can you see yourself in this excess? How to stop yourself?”
The artwork is participating in MyEstonia? competition
'My Estonia?' calls for reflections on Estonia through the eyes of foreigners. For some participants, Estonia might be a chapter of their lives, for others it may evoke more arbitrary associations or Malevich “Black Square” type of interpretations - all in all, the competition looks for a wide array of playful approaches.
