MIRAGE

2011
video, 6:06 min

Mirage is a video inside a video, an undefined story and a dream. Viewers can see figures in an empty place in the monitor. Time inevitably goes forward and spins the swaying bodies. Mirage imitates an incongruous, grueling and voyeristic world. It shows a middle finger to conservative body images, gender, art and fashion and instead laughs at life itself.

24/7 Shiva describes the complex process of painting. It shows an alternative way to present the artist and also a comment for a narrow minded and conservative artist stereotypes.
