Forever Active, David Mackaay
The installation “Forever Active” reflects on the urge to stage our lives to a more attractive version of reality: to stay fit, grow, and to be successful on all levels. These are the characteristics of a self-portrait accepted by society and reinforced by the beginning of the social media era. The work “Forever Active” reacts to the artificial happiness and examines it from a critical point of view.
In the pavilion “Mother Of Pearl” there are three works on display. Two widespread arms, installed above a round window, a silver vitrine placed in the opening and a pair of Track Sandals on the floor. “Forever Active” is written on the belts of the sandals and the words are facing towards the viewer.
