CITIZEN OF THE STATE
In the same hospital ,upon the same bed, different people die in their different ways.
In my experience, hospitals -wich have always determined life and death-are symbol
of power and violence. When people are born in this place, and whwn they die, they seem to be
so insignificant and powerless.
In this series, I wanted to use a surrealist technique and a precise pictorial composition
to depict what happens at the death of normal people in a country fixated by heroism,
the relationship between a few ordinary people and the state as i understood it.
