Within a constantly changing world, every new day endures a surprise; the contemporary man experiences a reality that overwhelms him. Power and strength, the subordinate and the dominant; meanings have been stretched and distorted, challenging the modern man to establish a current positioning strategy. Faced with his decision he stands before unexpected dilemmas and is forced to devise a new self-image adjustable to extreme conditions and meet up to new standards. The individual is forced to self infuse and accumulate power from situations, power that he does not have. The quest for strength and for survival is the source and the cause of a powerful addictive behavior. This pursuit suggests the underlying concept in the exhibition POWERFOOL.
When Dr. Frankenstein questions the beginning of creation and the origin of life by devising a horrible human ghost, he in fact portrays the modern man in his quest to revive matter from power; in so he creates his personal ghost that destroys both creator and host.
