Recycling (Mixed Media Installation/2008)
Let's imagine for a minute a possible scenario: What if there was a man or a woman who decided one day to throw away his/her heart? What if he/she decided to sell his heart at a very cheap price? Sell it to the first guy that came around collecting rubbish for recycling? Off goes the heart, as the garbage collector tosses it on to his three-wheeled bicycle. And takes the heart away….
This memorial to the cheap sale of one's heart is related to one's fate, one's life situation, and the daily realities of one's life experience. The absurdity of such a scenario is far less absurd than many of life's realities.
In "Recycling", I present the experience of an ordinary artist, and the ordinary every day material and experiences he accumulates, and relies on, to express the vicissitudes of every day life. I leave it up to you to decide whether or not any of this has any real meaning.
