Rahman Hak-Hagir - PLACEBO LOVE (2014)
[Video Performance | 3:00 mins | 1920 × 1080 HD]
PLACEBO LOVE is about repetitive failing in an attempt to cure symptomatic personal social disorders and corrupted self identification by consuming the love from others like a noneffective drug.
It also invites the audience to co-investigate if an affected artist should rather consult a psychiatrist for proper treatment or keep on labeling his / her emotional disturbances as "Art"; or not; or both.
