Shadow

September 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I can scarcely find words to describe how much I love this new sculptural performance by Thai artist Rook Floro.

My sculpture/performance piece is inspired by Carl Jung’s psychological theory about the shadow. It concerns with the repressed ideas, weakness, and desires of oneself that the conscious mind refuses to acknowledge.

It represents my ‘shadow’ which involves my hidden desires to be different and become perfect in my own right. We always feel the pressure to be perfect by everything around us such as the media, social network, advertisement, friends, and family.

Look carefully, that’s actually the artist sitting in the chair, the standing figure some type of liquid/plasticine cast of his body. See more over on Behance.
