je suis le ROI du monde

 

In this piece I explore the idea of modernism as an illusion and a harmful concept, through creating the modern person and exploiting the energies of their bodies and their desire for power.

 

“Even though we construct society through and through, it surpasses us, it dominates us, it has its own laws, it is as transcendent as nature.” Bruno Latour, We Have Never Been Modern. 1993
