The mural “Inner Gingerbread House” is created as an allusion to the main place of the fairy tale about Hansel and Gretel. The work was created on the facade of a detached house in the rural area of Ternopil.
Fencing off one’s territory by the wall and desire to emphasize in this way the privacy of everything that happens inside has clear, typical intentions of mentality. But as a result of a daily compilation of criminal or dramatic nature news in most media, such innocent actions generate other connotations. This domestic household escapism turns every house behind the fence into a potential “gingerbread house” and place full of secrets, household dramas and own fantasies of neighbors or passers-by. Mural hyperbolizes this context and transforms the familiar facade of a private home into a space that balances abstractionism, post-graffiti and psychedelic aesthetics. In contrast to the pastoral environment, this gap in the body of melancholic tranquil life leads to a complete absurdity of thinking about the constant danger that “others” bear in themselves.
In the end, most of us, as a product of the media era, are accustomed to nourishing all of our phobias from various sources of information. After feeding, immediately turn on one or another reaction. But only some of us are looking for a key to break these algorithms within themselves.
