Weapons of Perfection

 

The unconscious is sitting on my shoulders, whispering, calling for revolution. The giant grandpa wants to teach me how to move, how to smile, how to behave. I shave my hair.

Weapons of Perfection is the result of a two years’ research revolving around the issues of social norms and behaviour that define and direct human interactions. My work is presented as an installation and dialogue between body and objects, photography and video. It is divided into chapters, each representing a specific type of instruction concerned with shaping posture and mind. The finished artefacts invite touch but resist use, if seen as weapons. Weapons of Perfection offers a view on the invisible social constrictions and boundaries we can be confronted with.
