Narcissus

Concurrently I became interested in Plato's Cave allegory, a group of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected onto a wall from objects passing in front of a fire behind them, and give names to these shadows. The sensory, visual, shadow representations of reality. In this way, it was like a mirror of sorts. The keyword of Narcissus is based on the nature of human perception and self-exploration of reality. My initial idea was to build a spatial illusion, an installation that invited the viewer to participate and interact with while questioning the nature of reality in a disorienting space

 

In November 2019 I exhibited in the Crypt Gallery, London. It was the first time that I participated in the entire exhibition process from the beginning to the end.

Suffering from an identity crisis of sorts, and feeling detached from painting, I explored psychological concepts as well as new materials. The search in a mirror and the production of selfies, with a high level of self-attention, could be considered narcissistic, and I made a series of pieces on this subject.
