Days of mundanity
The project Days of Mundanity (2014-2015) depicts the world of a modern day nine-to-five worker. It consists of seven paintings, each depicting one weekday from Monday to Sunday. In the lives of people living as prisoners of comfort, routine and fear, moments of (deceptive) freedom occur side by side with grim and mundane reality of everyday working environment. The sound of the alarm clock early in the morning, underpaid job, long lines in supermarkets, date with a loved one, relaxing in a pub with friends, holiday in the sun – all these events are basically the same, as they all belong to the same seven day circle that one has to go through over and over again. Despite the constant state of exhaustion and depression there is hope deep inside of each person, hope and belief that they are special and all of it has meaning. Days of Mundanity is dedicated to the people enduring this lifestyle.
