Behind the Rules
Words by Yohanes Soubirius De Santo
Looking at the present house which from time to time in the current era, the house is like a prison that entices a person to live and is bound by rules that seem far-fetched and do not make sense. So that many people choose to run away from home and leave the house full of stress. This work that I create aims to convey the feelings of people who feel like their home is like a prison and I present these feelings in the form of visual illustrations in this work.
I'm Starting To Be Spotted
Seeing the chaotic and uncontrollable atmosphere of the house today, because more and more negative ingredients continue to enter the house, so the image of the real house has started to fade from time to time, and slowly the good things in the house only remain. memories that were gone. This work that I created with the aim of conveying the feelings of the directors being disturbed and flavored by negative ingredients into the house and I present these feelings in the form of visual illustrations in this work.
Gradually Getting Better
The work that I made, started from my vision of the environment around me who was currently working on a sculpture-making project, the sculptures that are being made by some of these people are expected to become a new entertainment in my neighborhood. This is my point of view about the world of art, where art cannot be a cure for a disease, but art can be a health therapy that can make conditions better from all the discomfort that exists in the mind and body of every being.
My work is derived from my view of the behavior of many people who often underestimate the negotiations with health recommendations during COVID-19 made by the government, in addition to not wearing masks, behavior in making the crowd participate in negotiations. Back again with the excuse of being bored at home, longing with friends, and others. Of course this could actually worsen and increase COVID-19 cases. In my work, I illustrate this situation by making a lot of characters clustered but there is a child who is wrapped in snakes and the clustered characters do not care for the child, it illustrates the current situation where there are a lot of people created, but in a crowd it seldom thinks about how the situation was during COVID-19.
In this work I tell about how the attitudes and nature of the authorities who abuse the office, where the rulers from time to time continue to produce sweet promises such as honey in order to smooth their way and purpose, but people do not know it is actually a poison that will miserable them. So that the sense of humanity, love, and freedom to obtain health, education, employment, etc. that has been promised has become very unlikely to be realized. It is the attitude and nature of these rulers that makes social problems such as racial, ethnic, religious and cultural differences that continue to the present day, if this continues, humanity, love, and freedom are merely illusions.
(Parents are symbolized as rulers, Children as communities, and Snakes as honey but actually poison)
