"Give a "bad thing" a breath"

Section MS7, Helene Kazan

Keywords: performance, mixed media installation

“What is reasonable is real; that which is real is reasonable” in this quote, Hegel outlines some thoughts on existentialism. People create many standards to restrict or prohibit others behaviour. Being unnatural assumes a meaning of violates the laws of nature, but that kind of thing will not exist at all, so there is no need to prohibit it. I use mix-media installation to create spaces of free expression. The aim is to inspire people to reconsider what is natural human behaviour in the society, and therefore withhold judgement on others by their own "values" or "impressions". Everyone should have the right to choose what they want to define themselves or things by.
