Dodo 2017 Jan New york II


I’m interested in why people don’t really know what they want and what true freedom is.
I wants to send a message of warning to modern people who have lost their own value
through Dodo bird, an extinct bird species that couldn’t fly. He takes wandering as a way
to overcome this tragic story of Dodo birds. Wandering is considered to be improper
in a residential society. However he believes that a man can grow up by wandering on
roads. And for the artist, wandering is painting, and it becomes a reason and a purpose
of painting.
Through this dodo bird tragedy, I want to talk about the Homo Viator story which philosopher
Gabriel Marcel have mentioned. The meaning of ‘wandering man’, human becomes
developed by wander aimlessly from place to place. I think this Homo Viatoristic spirit is
the answer on solving the tragic situations that comes from domiciliation society. This is
also the reason and a goal at the same time, which I want to achieve by working on my
These artworks that have been shown to the world could be said as a result of my life’s
wanders. All the wandering style will have different characteristics and I want to wander
and communicate with telling stories with my artworks. I believe these works are great
sources to prove that I show my social responsibilities as an artist and at the same time
including spirit of the Homo Viator.
These works are done in US. I was selected for the Art Mora residency program competiton,
from Jan to Mar 2017. I got a opportunity to work in studio and hold a solo exhibition
in gallery in New Jersey. So, now I preparing solo exhibition here.
United States is a very unfamiliar country for me because this is my first visit.
Nevertheless, the reason why I am working in an unfamiliar place, I felt a strong inspiration
though change of place in Mauritius. It was incredibly uncomfortable and troublesome
that to change work place. But I believed it was worth it.
It is also a way of testing myself. I’m sure that ‘moving’ is always my topic. staying
here, I want to feel inspiration as much as possible from New York and to unpack them
on the canvas.

The best aspects of this artwork are profound contents. I also like the harmony between the obscure style and bizarre feeling.
