Within a constantly changing world in which each new day holds a surprise, the contemporary man experiences a reality that overwhelms him. Power and strength, the subordinate and the dominant; meanings have been stretched and distorted, challenging the contemporary man to state his current positioning strategy. Faced with his decision he stands before unexpected dilemmas and is forced to re create a new persona for himself, one that that will rise up to the occasion and meet up to the new standards. Extreme adjusting conditions require the individual to self infuse and acquire power from situations, power that he does not have. The quest for strength and for survival is the source and the cause of a powerful addictive behavior. This pursuit suggests the underlying concept in the exhibition POWERFOOL.
When Dr. Frankenstein questions the beginning of creation and the origin of life by devising a horrible human ghost, he in fact portrays the modern man in his quest to revive matter for power; in so he creates his own, personal ghost that destroys both creator and host.
