The concept behind these works began with the simple idea of balance and evolved into an exploration of weight and accumulation.

In the first pictures, there was more focus on achieving a balance with the elements in the scene (often in vain). Towards the end, objects have become a load to bear, a buildup that incorporates people to crush them.

The series focuses on the existentialist theme that I have explored for years: humankind’s attempt to understand its presence in the world. This attempt, however, does not arise with the dignity of clear philosophical thought. Rather, it becomes an absurd search of foolish behaviours, sleepy or catatonic states, and abnormal or incoherent interactions with the objects in the scene.

Each subject vents their neurosis into a futile search for knowledge and meaning. This desire, however, is destroyed by ignorance, which does not allow even the Socratic ‘knowledge of not knowing’.
