BASEMENTIZID... ...DECEMBER/ JANUARY!
- Date published
Majls is a bear that tries to be appreciated by humans and other species. His dreams that to become successful and for example, be seen in media as a genius or a star, could be hard to realize when you look different. And therefore it might just stays there, just a dream. Majls´s art got its starting point in his own dreams about acceptance, social status and a better life. By observing the human behaviours and their relation towards status, the Bear Majls also tries to archive something higher. A life where he becomes appreciated and respected. But does this work when you look different and what happens if you don´t succeed? Does this fantasy world exist in reality or only mentally? Majl´s art seems to be ambiguous, there is something under the surface that touches several existential respects within our contemporary age like self realisation, happiness and glory, but at the same time dissatisfaction and being an outsider. It definitely asks questions that affects us.
“What Majls does and say but means might be two different things, to me that is good art! You recognize yourself in Majls, you get forced to examine yourself. Visually, mystical and magical, an excellent concept.”
