These series talk about the transformation from one body to another. From one stage to another. From one moment to another. They open the doors of the deeper connections between species, where we can see a huge inequality, often twisted in a metaphorical way. There is no wrong or right, there is more than one side and lots of questions about relations between one kind to another. And we, as a humankind, are just one piece in this intersectional spiderweb.
At the same time through the artworks AIWS investigates on the link between pleasure and self harm and what is beyond that. Why it may hurt for a number of reasons. Sometimes it’s because you forget those painful parts or that red spot of blood on your chest that contains smell and puts you closer to the final destination. Or your own smile that time you knew things you shouldn’t have. Sometimes it hurts just because you know someone else has experienced the same thing and there was nothing you could do, just silently observe and move on. But sometimes it’s the most painful when you realise others know you are hurt. They take away your pain. And there is nothing left, and you feel empty. Because your pain and your loneliness was the only truthful thing you had.
Do not cut your eyes out. Do not let others silence you.
Look. Think. Feel. And do something about it.
About the author. AIWS is an art product that is hooked on images of silence, human race, uniforms, absurd, one sided objects and searches for the perfection that we will never reach.
