Sculpture Cup-id is a part of the Turbofolk collection.
The sculptures are made of eco-plastic, polyester and acrylic coloured.
Turbofolk is a figural sculpture collection created between 2020-22 during the covid pandemic. The complete set consists of 15 polychrome figures, mostly life-size. It is a moralistic appeal to reflect on today’s consumer-oriented world. The sculptures portray the social problems associated with religion, gender, racism, ecology, and similar topics, and opens questions such as the use of power and the freedom of perception. It ironizes people’s connection to fleeting things and draws attention to the fact of separation from profound life experiences.
None of the Turbofolk sculptures give answers, but ask questions.
The sculpture Cup-id asks:
What if our body was a cup longing to be filled with love? And what if our soul was the driving force to fulfil this desire? What would happen if only ego filled the cup? And what could happen if a person was just a soul without an ego or just an ego without a soul? What gives us true wings and what is the true slippery slope?
