I started working on the Delirium series in March 2020. A pandemic has just been declared in the world and many people have started to go crazy slowly, and some of us quickly. I reread Camus’s “Plague” and thought, I wonder what will happen first – the end of the pandemic or the fact that we will get used to it? The idea came to me that the pandemic is a “peaceful war”. And the worst thing that can happen during a war is that people get used to it.
The Delirium series is my reflection on a collective mental illness. The world turned upside down and went crazy, lost its integrity, we lost freedom of movement, and as a result, freedom of choice. Therefore, the heroes of my Paintingss in this series literally split into pieces, lose perspective and human appearance, fragments of bodies remain from them, they lose their heads and a mask or an animal’s head appears in its place, because isolation in many of us has awakened primitive instincts aimed at survival. Delirium is a borderline state on the threshold of insanity. That’s how I felt the epidemic and the events provoked by it. But my characters are still restrainedly melancholic and accept what they cannot change.
