|description:||The installation is an original interpretation of the theme of passion (contemporary).
The word passion, in this case has two meanings, it concerns the activity performed with pleasure, and is a reference to Christian symbolism. On the face of the prevailing cultural pattern, the stereotype of masculinity - the contemporary man succumbs to physical suffering by practicing, disciplining the body at the gym and treating it often as a sacrum.
The video image was registered at the gym. It presents a shot of the male face (frame upside down) at the moment of tension and extreme effort. The image is colored, without sound, recorded in slow motion in the loop.
