The next pictures are a serial of proposals. They started being nature questions, but could end on a very long list of any other topic, mainly related to politics and religion.
Up to Budapest and its empty potential space mainly used by artists for space interventions. Trying a new irony, this “meant to be” artistic space could be changed into a promotional icon. An advertisement looking for new creatives creates a double irony on a capital with a communist background.
The last picture comes back to the celebrations issue. The irony is placed in Istanbul. The real advertisement refers to the China and celebrate its new year, the Tiger one, which is a beer brand… on a country where its religious tradition would not allow them to drink it?
This project just pretends new situations in open public spaces, where messages can be easily reached. An innocent perspective for a big issue. Like drawings on newspapers. Like tourists would do on their traveling, like we would do on a weekend out in Vienna.
The more innocent sights are sometimes the more critical ones with its own environment. While analysing the public space we could easily have a look to this Coca-Cola advertisement where they wish us merry christmas… And it is happening on a church under work. Rising funds should be transparent, but it is still kind of paradoxical.
Basically, what on a day were just celebrations for the season change, has been used by religions to support their own believing. Then, used once again by commercial purposes that finally support the own church who used such a celebration.
But let’s go a step further and play with imagination. Which ironies could we easily find on our urban environment? Would be politically correct to support Venecia’s works through advertisements of a catastrophal film?
