The Awkward Project Adonis Archontides

I exist, that is all, and I find it nauseating. Jean-Paul Sartre

the awkward project

What exactly makes a human being? Is there some kind of archetype that everyone has to subscribe to in order to have the right to be included in this ‘elite’ group? What happens when you feel like you don’t fit in, that some things just don’t make sense and that you are an Outsider to this world?

The project is a series of sculptures which explore the philosophy of Existentialism, of which the core idea posits that each human being is free to be whatever he/ she chooses… and as a consequence that this realisation is enough to cause Fear and Trembling in the being of someone, to flip it upside-down. The sculptures are reminiscent of modern idols depicting everyday actions (sitting, praying, stretching, shitting, etc…) as a way of exalting our pointless daily lives. They are presented flipped, uncomfortable, calling on the viewer to consider the meaning that he/she gives to his/her life at any given moment.
