an exhibition by Otto Farkas
12 sep – 17sep 2016
Are you totally in control of your life or do you find it controlled by others? Are you even aware of all the ways you are controlled? What purpose does control perform? What do we do when control is taken to the extreme? What happens when control is lost?
‘Cruising Spirits’, examines the concept of control and its role in the potential protection from chaos through a series of paintings and installations by the Hungarian born, London based artist Otto Farkas.
Control is a persistent force present in possibly every aspect of our lives and or never truly achieved in the first place. Control impacts the individual having a profound effect on the consequential actions of an individual or group be it in the short or long term.
‘ Cruising Spirits ‘ seeks to bring these elements together to drive awareness and question the concept that is control.
