PRODUCTS OF CIVILIZATION

About

In my work I speak about the cult of disposable items. The selected object is a handkerchief - a symbolic object (a farewell symbol, knot binding, wrapping expensive items, embroidery of the family initials, etc.), which completely disappeared in the increasingly universal world. The replacement - disposable tissue paper, which does not maintain traditions and symbols. It becomes an impersonal soulless product of globalization. Little by little, it happens with other things. In my work I speak about impersonal objects that become more universal over time, about loss of traditions and the economic system forcing every object to turn disposable regardless of its value or symbolism.
