DON’T WORRY, EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL

2002

700 x 300 cm, fabric, styrofoam, reproductions 60 x 40 cm each    

the installation is composed of a red background on which a sign and two reproductions of sacral paintings dominate

the way in which the work is set is based on political and propaganda aesthetics; the setting reminds us of the setting of communist school events, syndicate and party gatherings

the Orwell-like sign “DON’T WORRY, EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL” can be understood in two ways, as bringing trust or creating an illusion of order on one hand, and symbolizing “higher force” control on the other

the sacral paintings emphasize both interpretations of the sign

the contradicting elements instead of “explaining” each other put us the borderline of sense, leaving us without a logical interpretation of the work i.e. our “control” over the work
