The STADTGALERIE SAARBRÜCKEN asked me to paint a wall behind their gallery. I decided to use the two big square walls as panels to tell a short story. Inspired by the internet phenomenon, FELT CUTE, MIGHT DELETE LATER, I wanted to reflect on our self awareness in the age of social media. With one click we can decide to be seen by thousands of people or delete something and disappear.
I am curios how being viewed and reacted to by people online, reflects back on us and changes the way we view ourselves. To enhance my point I painted the wall in a very instagramable style. The viewer can stand in front of the character I painted, take his place, take a picture and post it, and then delete it again.
