Independence and Innocence

Inkjet prints, capa, ribbons, chains, 2022.

The installation consists of photographs of various creatures, but also of two collages constructed from various natural elements, with mountain formations taking center stage. In the Balkans, these mountain landscapes carry the symbolic weight of "freedom." This freedom extends beyond liberation from occupiers, states, the public, rules, and civilization. Numerous figures wander between these distinct realms, embodying a sense of liberty while simultaneously tethered to their surroundings.

The visual inspiration for this work draws from computer games, particularly Samorost—an online game crafted by the Czech game design company Amanita Design. In Samorost, the field of view encompasses a floating planet sculpted from discarded wood, including roots, trunks, and branches. Computer games, with their structure and narrative, became integral to the artistic process, resonating with themes of longing for freedom and the desire to traverse between different worlds.
