Prayers, 2019

The main question in this project is how one’s faith affects one’s personality. Examples from modern history and our present socio-political situation abound with the ugly truth: political and religious leaders can easily weaponize religious feelings in response to social, financial, and political injustices. Due to the difficulties of survival and growing feelings of oppression, the faithful can easily be manipulated. The installation Prayers has been conceived as an examination of this human necessity to believe and to fulfill the need to belong somewhere. In a chaotic world, the safety of a smaller community in which one can feel significant is a relief. However, despair can create a weakness that makes one lose the real meaning of their faith and, eventually, reality.
