Sculpture Superman 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 Superman asks:
Who is the hero of today? What are the roles we play? Are they important? Are we creators, players, or both? Do we see and use our true powers, or do we dream about the super ones? When less is more and more is less? When to act and when to stop? Do we really have enough time?
