Sculpture His Holiness is a part of the Turbofolk collection.
The sculptures are made of eco-plastic, polyester, 24 ct. gold plated 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 His Holiness asks:
What does spirituality mean? What is real and what is an illusion? Mind or body? Pain or joy? Duality or unity? What if being spiritual means being fully in the world knowing we are not coming from it? What if we bear absolute responsibility for how we perceive everything we experience?
