Reclaim The Streets: Exhibition - 2019
The 3sec.gallery and De Affiche Galerij each year challenge first-year students of Dutch art academies to recapture their street with their own message. My message is the above:
In our everyday life we follow the same paths over and over again to work/to visit without realising that these paths shape our life like this sketch of a sad, discontent face. No matter if it’s for fun or for health or for money or out of respect, it is the repetition day after day week after week month after month wear after wear that eventually brings us down. Pills are the usual remedy. The dots I used as destinations or stops for the “ordinary paths” are actually pills (different substances - different colors). For most people the word ordinary signifies comfort. I try to show that it is also a danger.
