The Eye of God or the Eye of Beast
installation, video, digital collage
A few months ago, I came across an amateur video from a small village near the city where I grew up. The video Bystrany - a beast or a god appeared in the sky records a strange phenomenon in the sky and at the same time becomes a testimony of the magical world of faith.
God and the beast are extremely close to each other precisely because they are opposites. But who is really hiding behind a beast and a god? God's eye is the human eye and the beast is shot by a beast stronger than itself.
The work points to the relationship between God - man - the beast. The biblical story, confirming the belief that man is the master of creation, led to the plundering of nature. The beast becomes a persecuted victim, whose skin was used to make fashion accessories.
