Bitter, Sweet Freedom, Aydin Hayri, 2014. Acrylic paint, wire mesh, lemon slices and other found objects, 24” x 24”
In this four panel series I continue my exploration of our desire for freedom versus preservation of our valuables (represented here with dried lemon slices). However we choose to protect them, under lock, or through camouflage, or by putting boxes around them, there is an irrepressible desire to fly away, but such flight is not without its own hazards, as the mutilated slices on the top left panel depicts. Ways we try to protect ourselves or our valuables is immensely diverse and stupefying, but somewhat futile.
The exhibition shows only the three of the four panels.
