ROOM 2 | “HOLLOW”
Modern life asks for a great fee to everyone. As they say, if you’re not paying for the product, you are the product. The question this room raises is: in a world where almost everything is free, are we a product or a by-product?
Day by day we’re segregating ourselves into something strange and twisted. Something peculiar and unique: our inner space. We’re loosing contact with others, we feel better within our very own space. Why?
Why can’t we feel comfortable with others? Does technology changed our perception of life and of ourselves? Is this changing forever?
Does this continuous loneliness changes us forever? Will we arrive at the point where we won’t feel comfortable with ourselves anymore?
Jean-Paul Sartre once said that “If you feel lonely when you are alone, you are in bad company”. Are we really going in this direction? Judging by the painting in this room it would seems so.
But we want visitors to have the final word on this matter.
That’s why they can immerse themselves in this particular room where they will ultimately find out that displayed paintings are depicting a particular kind of emptiness: theirs.
