On the Shortness of Life, 2012–2015
"Life is divided into three periods; Present-day, past and future. Of these, 'now' is very short, the future uncertain and the past is certain" Seneca
                                                                                                                               
The source of my exhibition has been Seneca's "on the shortness of life". In his work, he states that the time we live is sufficient, as long as it is used well. He also notes that we are short of life because we can not use it well enough.
My works are neither pedagogical nor moral, and I do not try to appeal to the viewer's feelings.Nor is my purpose to question the lap of life or the course of time.
In visualizing time, I'll point out its concepts: the past, the present, and the future. Regardless of what everyone does, I want to give value to daily chores in everyday routines and time. In my works, I use everyday objects and elements that are part of our everyday life.
My aspiration is to re-evaluate the 'close-by', what is personal to each person. In addition, the purpose is to appreciate this moment and its uniqueness, that every moment always changes to the past, a possible commemoration that the individual carries with it.
