Near-tragic Farsightedness

This project can be renamed as How to be Oblivious to Human Sufferings, but then it would call for a crowding of the artistic spaces – each frame would be teeming with anthropomorphic forms, expressing their existence and anxiety 'in this time of listlessness', as they say.

One can assume that Near-tragic Farsightedness is also about not willing to cast a position that contagiously or unconsciously direct our gaze to the position itself. It is about an understanding of the tragic time when all positioning seems futile. Therefore, the project is about the wait for a better time, a moment for truth to arrive.
