ARTIST STATEMENT

Jean Baudrillard reveals how insensitive we have become, in fact, a society, when he reveals the theory of simulation and points out that everything is just images, and that life is inanimate. In conceptual art, the shaping of the object with philosophy and language is also an important distinction. This relationship allows attention to the ordinary and everyday life, and makes you think that nothing is not actually ordinary. The artist focuses on the theme of silence as a response to the theme of noise in his works. In part of his work, he uses the ‘ Gestuno ’ alphabet, the only sign language of international silence. The artist proposes concepts and analyses with his works, presents the audience to understand, solve and complete them with his own thought. The concept uses the term as a means of criticism. The concept of art is not only limited to the art structure, but it considers it as a broad concept.
