The work of the artist, designer and photographer from Girona, Octavi Serra, focuses on capturing the irony, truisms and frustrations of modern life. Optical illusions and waste products are presented in public spaces and then photographed as part of an attractive philosophical series. The work of the Spanish artist is a sign of our times and a reaction to dissatisfaction with the current social landscape. Serra builds conceptual facilities that make fun of today’s culture and seriously question the status quo: each image portrays a message about some kind of sociopolitical problem. Whether surveillance, greed, corruption, environmental destruction, selfishness, technology …
Insufficient is the title of this work. In an explicit way and playing typographically with support, we want to represent greed and constant dissatisfaction with the circumstances of each moment. This feeling of never being completely satisfied even though the reason argues that we should be. This desire to always have more, which make the road impossible to enjoy.
