My first private exhibition ITKE SE POIS (Cry it away) is about sorrows and comfort. I have approached the theme through symbolic meanings of everyday objects and materials. Tissue napkins are in the main role. Sorrow is a feeling that is familiar to everyone. But depending on one’s gender, age, or other characteristic, there are different “right ways” to express it. I hope the exhibion brings comfort for everyone - everyone should be able to express their feelings of sorrow without shame.
The visitors can sprinkle salt into the water and watch how their sorrows melt, creating a collective tear:
1. Take a pinch of salt from the bowl
2. Sprinkle it into the water
3. Watch how your sorrows melt into collective tear
Repeat if necessary
I will take care of the Tear after the exhibition. I will pour The Collective Tear into the Sea.
