Description of the artwork «Totem»

Each person is a complex system with its past and present. We are aware of only a small part of what is happening within us, our mind. Sometimes thoughts, emotions, sensations and behavior are dictated by something that we do not even notice - and, accordingly, cannot explain.

In addition, we strive to maintain an established order, whatever it may be, long for security.

A "totem" is the embodiment of a human being. Rather, his mind - with all the contradictions, subpersonalities, secret and overt desires. This is our compass in this demanding and rapidly changing world. We trust the power of the mind, even though we sometimes suffer from it, because some questions remain unanswered.

The mind is the new totem.
