The Absence of Violence


On War, personal project, March-May 2022

Peace is seen as the ‘abcence of violence’ the language of war tells us. This series of works is a result of a coping mechanism, living through a lasting trauma, when all the words are lost their meanings.  
The not-so-newspeak is all over the place. In Orwell's words, it was "designed to diminish the range of thought." Ambiguous and purposefully confusing language, which grammar and vocabulary are heavily restrictes. When ungood replaced bad and special operation is what’s going on, but there’s no war, you can’t trust what you hear any longer. Despite the metaphors images now contain more truth, than words.
