A series of dull and meanigless works of art

 

A series of dull and meaningless works of art

It frightens me to see myself paralysed in a constant state of shock. All I do is rant on social media & sign hundreds of petitions every month, feeding 'the machine' with data about myself, data that becomes valuable information for corporations to manage us. I am sick and tired of being pushed around by politicians and politics, by cruel conventions and mindless laws. But what do I do, what do I do against this self-digesting system I belong to, feed, support? How much do I really care about political and social injustice, the continuous murder of millions of people, the lies of the established mass media & environmental issues etc.?

A Series of Dull & Meaningless Works of Art addresses my own failure, frustration & struggle to produce work that makes an immediate positive difference in the world. I catch myself standing back and observing an endless string of cruel & mindless events out there without taking any relevant actions. Instead, I withdraw myself and indulge in idle artistic projects.

A Series of Dull & Meaningless Works of Art consists of various works that analyse themselves within a turbulent and confusing world, a world that can no longer be clearly understood & defined, a world where rational thought is constantly being challenged, a world that is characterized by irrational thought against any common sense.
