Kitsch

(Installation / felt, mattress, prints, electronics / 2014)

 

The project raises relationships between the human heart and the erotic influences, and between the borders of high and low art. The human heart pillows are the design, and the inner female voices express the significative marks of kitsch. However these concepts not just represent a low art appearance, but also demonstrate some connection with the love making as well, related to the effects of the human heart. The signs of pop culture of the emotional exaltation offers such a mimic prefabricated tension to the everyday people, which do not represent the common reality (like soap operas, reality shows or advertisements). The erotic texts which can be heard in the artwork can awaken a longing in the visitor, just like the romantic novels qualified as trash fiction in the excited readers. These kind of sensitive impressions and certain over-excitements definitely regulating the heart’s function. However the sexual activity also influences our biological and psychological functions in a large way, which is located at the bottom level of Abraham Maslow’s hierarchical pyramid of the theory of needs.
