Must not be beautiful

This thought-provoking conceptual work delves into the multifaceted nature of human existence, simultaneously exploring the tangible reality of the physical body and the intangible depths of the soul, which remains ensnared in illusion. It contemplates the notion that life emerges from a void and ultimately returns to the same state.
Through powerful visual imagery, the artwork reveals the inherent conflict between the grotesque and spiritual dimensions of humanity. By dissecting and exposing the raw reality of the human form, it challenges conventional standards of beauty and confronts the inherent ugliness that lies beneath the surface. This exploration serves as a catalyst for contemplation on the complex duality of existence.
In addition, this work of art raises critical questions inspired by Marina Abramovic's "Art Must Be Beautiful” It challenges the traditional expectations of beauty and disrupts the notion that art and artists must conform to societal ideals.
In this silent movie, the absence of sound is a purposeful artistic choice. The surrounding environment and its ambient sounds serve as the bg music, immersing viewers in a sensory experience that complements the visual narrative. By relying on the sounds of the surroundings, the artist aims to create a unique and immersive cinematic journey that engages the audience on a deeper level, allowing them to connect with the artwork's emotional impact and atmospheric nuances.
Exhibit: Tate Britain; Sofia Underground.
