Artists Statement

.

Molokid’s collection feels like a labyrinth. It’s a maze that one travels through, exploring different realms and various layers of art and the human state. The Argentinean graphic designer’s collection is so powerful it causes a feeling of uncertainty. It’s very aware of the things that make us human, our flesh, bones, muscles, even the plants we consume that give us oxygen. It suggests this by constantly fragmenting and dividing bodies with graphics or graphing paper. It also denies the observer a full view of a body.
But the collection goes further than just skin deep. It’s a mindful eye observing sociology, psychology, and philosophical theory.

.

Molokid’s work manages to be both contradicting and ironic. It questions many things about society and our obsession with pop culture. The collages commonly include vintage cameras and reels of film. In some collages a camera replaces the human head. Through Molokid’s lens we are a self-consumed society. We are also a very sexual society and Molokid frequently reminds the observer of that. The human body is often up for observation – not all of it, just pieces.

.

His work watches the world with a voyeuristic eye. This approach lurks within various shapes, colors, materials and body parts and challenges the viewer to find and understand the correlation.

.
Molokid offers observers a glimpse into his world and as expected with any artist, not everything is bright and cheery. In fact, it feels downright dystopian at times. His art is filled with reminders that despite all of our power – technology, guns, etc – we’re all going to die. That fact is inevitable.

.
Molokid’s work is jolting and it challenges your mind, as any great art should. The observer is required to think, wonder, question, and most importantly pause, which is a hope for any artist.

When asked: “Why Balaclava.Q?”

Molokid: “Since I started my art career my style changed a lot, but what never changed was my tendency to depersonalize the human being.  Balaclava.Q is the first time that I have been able to showcase one specific feature of my work that is so strong (depersonalization).  The face is the stronger part of the human body, the first thing we see in a person. But when this feature is replaced or ignored, that is when the connection is made and begin to raise questions and meanings.” – Molokid / 2016
