"Perfect Imperfection", Public Commission, Sodertalje Hospital, Sodertalje/ Stockhom, Sweden, 2020

Through years of working researching on Trauma effect on the human psyche and the topic of self-care, mental health and its improvement trying to approach it through the use of art, process, artistic materials and methodologies thus my practice tends to use conceptual, minimalist and spiritual vision towards the implemented subject I am tackling every time I work on a new project.

I recognise human imperfections, but at the same time to accept them, I think we should live as human beings, with all our imperfections, rather than strive to lead ourselves towards the impossible perfectionist idea. In our life we tend to think about the platonic concept of perfection, which is unattainable; the thing which leaves us sometimes depressed or not understanding why we cannot reach everything we want, or why we can’t keep everything as we want, like being free of pain and suffer, having a sustainable safeness and security. Since everything is relative and depends on the perspective of things in life around us and its conditions. Man is living a life in constant change and that is far from keep it perfect all the time. In our bodies and mind as well, we don’t understand that we are far from the flawless and perfect totality, we believe the strength of our bodies until we get sick, and the power of our soul until we are hurt. But through our imperfect situation we discover the substance of our real strength, our hidden power, we rediscover ourselves, and the love and bless of this life, the thing which makes us more attracted it to it and strive our souls to be healed. 

In this project Perfect Imperfection I wanted to draw attention to the idea that a man despite the imperfect moments in life, despite his pain and suffering, is still carrying the gold within his own spirit, where its radiance resembles the light and the sun that is shining within to keep us strong and safe. I wanted to present a Healing-conceptual vision about the idea of the Perfect Imperfection. On square papers, I applied pure gold 24kr in the middle, in a series of work as a mantra of life and surviving. It is the exact same shape, but it is applied based on memories, emotions and contemplation on life and the way we are living it, struggling with, suffering from, and enjoying it to the extreme. Some golden squares are broken and imperfect like us, some others are nearly perfect, but the square is never ideal as we will never be.
