Mixed Media. 2014
Narkissos is commenting on the growing trend of taking selfies. It is linked to mental health conditions that focus on a person’s obsession with looks. Some youths are so obsessed with capturing the perfect shot, they are diagnosed with Body Dysmorphic Disorder. This illness often co-occurs with depression, anxiety, social withdrawal, social isolation and even suicide. The idea of getting the perfect selfie puts you in a mental prison.
Narkissos has previously been exhibited at:
Forum Karlin, launch Porsche Panamera, Prague, Czech Republic, 2017
The Association of Norwegian Sculptors, Oslo, Norway, 2014
Sommeroya electronic music festival, Oslo, Norway, 2014
Narkossos will also be shown in season two of the TV series Delite Me, coming later this year.
