Essays On Reality / Chapter I

Like the first episode of the series, Essays on Reality II is characterized by "naive and minimalist" yet meaningful aesthetics. "I have always liked the correlation between simplicity and meaningful," explains Barth. "This contrast is what I love about the series, finding complexity and meaning in the simple, and the absurd in logic." Barth's concepts and their interpretation stem from existentialist and surrealist art figures such as Jean-Paul Sartre, Marcel Duchamp or Salvadore Dali while his aesthetic influences lay among artists like Jeff Koonz, Maurizio Cattelan, or Matthew Barney. Whether we agree or not with the vision of the society depicted by Barth, the disturbing and intriguing nature of his work won't leave you indifferent.
