#148 Entitled X
60x80 cm | Filler, oak frame
The works in this series are done by pressing down the filler vertically until it reaches a depth of 6mm.
There are 30 paintings in the series, the same as the articles in the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Today human rights are often used in a game of ideology to promote hidden agendas. It is necessary to discuss the status of their universality. Where does a universal right end and privilege begin?
In the same ways as the paintings in this series can be perceived as many thin slices of one three-dimensional form, perhaps the articles in the declaration can be understood as different slices of one bigger, more fundamental human right. Every subject in this world, everyone carrying a name, is equally entitled to these rights. So this one fundamental right would be the equality of all humans.
