Artwork description:

The works in this series are made by pressing down the filler vertically until it reaches a depth of 6mm.

There are 30 paintings in the series. The same amount as the articles in the UNs Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Today human rights are often used in a game of ideology, to promote hidden agendas. It is necessary to discuss the status of their universality. Where does a universal right end, and a privilege begin?

In the same ways as the paintings in this series can be perceived as many thin slices of one three dimensional form, perhaps the articles in the declaration can be understood as different slices of one bigger, more basic human right. In my view, that one fundamental right would be the equality of all human beings. If the notion that all humans have the same value is taken literally, it can be used as an argument for radical economic redistribution. And furthermore, if everybody has the same value, their time should also be valued the same, and thus salary should not be set according to performance or skills, but rather after hours worked.

Materials used:

Filler, oak frame
