Domestication/Pets/Plants

"Most charged with emotions, Domestication is the cycle in which Kriššák best expresses himself as a story teller. In terms of motifs, Domestication involves plants and animals, and the artist presents his opinions rather than being an impartial observer. The key inspirational impetus was the essay Why Look at Animals written by John Berger in 1977, which exposes a drastic transformation of ‘the natural connection between man and nature’ as a result
of the loss of direct sight. Some canvases give a naïve or idyllic impression, although Kriššák solely depicts houseplants ‘imprisoned’ in pots and sentenced to eternal beautification, and pets left at the mercy of their owners. However surprising it might seem, this series is primarily motivated by a critical attitude and the fact that we, as the viewers, are not aware of the bias of our vision and only co firm it."
