The 20th century has revealed artists such as Salvador Dalí, René Magritte and Pietro Fornasetti through the avant-garde movement known as surrealism. Visualising the world through striking and bizarre thought-provoking images, surrealism portrays stories and meanings from the real world.
Fast forward to 2020, a real and online world becoming increasingly surreal every day; L’Éveil steps into an eclectic vision of the social movements of our era, driven by a digital world full of judgements and critics. A world requiring us to fit in the box it wants us to shape into. A world we want to escape, but a reality we can’t hide from.
Yet hiding behind a mask, maybe losing ourselves in the process of becoming this new version of ourselves? What matters, in the end, is what we decide to put a value on. It’s when we’ll look back at it that we’ll understand what our true precious things are: The awakening in a mad world left to your interpretation.
