In my latest series of works „Can I change my career for a little fun?” from the cycle „The Future Belongs To Us” , 2006/2007 (which is consisted of paintings and video works) I combine the images / visual samples taken, on one hand, from contemporary fashion magazines (e.g. Vogue Bambini), and on the other hand, images from the very violent cartoon „Happy Tree Friends” (taken from the internet).
In this series of works my intention is to confront two unreal entities:
The first one, which represents the desired picture of the expectations of the adults / the society, and through which the child’s right to be what he or she is (impulsive, unpredictable, free), is taken away from him / her. This first entity is than inserted into the scenography of the second / other entity – the one of the cartoon.
My intention is to make one think through the process of increased awareness of the existence of the devious development of the collective consciousness and the patterns of behaviour, which in the present time, more than ever, intensified through violence, confrontation, war.
The phenomenon of violence and fear also interests me as well as the relation of the society towards these categories … what is particularly interesting and horrific at the same time is that violence and fear became a need and a form of entertainment.
