Art Exhibition “Identity Crisis” by Tiko El Outa
“Even a second of freedom is worth more than a lifetime of imprisonment”.
The identity crisis is the profound process of transformation, disintegration, and recomposition, often not lived at its fullest due to its unpleasant nature. What do we feel when our identity goes through a crisis? In her Identity Crisis collection, Tiko El Outa raises the question of the human mentality’s multi-layered nature, where the historical, emotional, physical, and social coexist in different proportions and change their form once new experiences and values surface.
The storyline of this collection is the unleashing of the Evil Self or the darker sides of humans, manifested in such concepts as politics, consumption, ideology and its duality, and the dynamic of the feminine generation. Enveloping and abrupt, clear and blurred, fragmented and completed images and strokes against an impeccably bright and lively background, this is who Tiko is, how her layered personality manifests itself in the here and now.
