WISHES, LIES AND DREAMS >> PRIMITIVE COOL… 2014
The Installation Series of Untitled (Wishes, Lies and Dreams >> Primitive Cool…) invites you to step
into an enchanted garden, simultaneously idyllic yet bizarrely repellent in its stark beauty. Riches
of baubles, pearls and diamonds are strewn alongside the frozen wildlife in this universe. The
natural and the artificial are thrown into coexistence in this dreamscape that is both familiar and
life-sized ape stares into the distance—is it fascinated by or fearful of what it sees? The
human-ape has wishes, lies and dreams for its future, which may swing towards a return to a
more innocent, primitive state, or continue on its materialistic march.
This atmospheric glittering world focuses on the mechanisms of perception and dreams, the
private world of the world of fantasy and unconscious, and the conditions underlying the system
by which the human mind and spirit operates.
