“The Burden” 2014

Size: 17 x 15 x 8 cm
Technique: oil on wood

This work is part of a series of painted wooden blocks that illustrate actions and my performative work. This particular practice is my personal method of thinking and planning ideas that later come to life, although they still exist as an autonomous work. In “The Burden” I portrayed myself carrying a heavy board on my back, the meaning is pretty simple: the difficulties of life, the lack of confidence in a Europe in crisis that can’t guarantee job positions for the youngsters, and so on.
