The World Without You

1999

Medium: DVD video
Duration: 3:23 min.


In the motivation of nature made by artificial stuff there are some TV- sets showing human bodies rolling about in the mud. This is a demonstration of an irrational striving for naturalness.
I consider the work The world without you an expression of opposition to the abstract ideas prevailing in our society, which put the living man into a contradictory situation. There is no choice between nature and civilization. I do not depict the reality and I do not give the model of escaping the ambiguity. In the work The world without me it is important for me to stress the loss of the mans individuality.
