The “Shy Room” installation by its construction teases your curiosity and provokes you to peep inside. The closer the viewer tries to get, the more tightly the construction closes. The starting point for the artist creating this work was Hannah Arendt’s philosophical texts. The philosopher tried to debunk the paradigm of dichotomous understanding of a human being, which is connected with its division into the mind and body. She emphasized that we acquire information from our surroundings through our senses, however “the appearance of phenomena depends on individual perception”. The only image of the world accessible to an observer is his own one, so it is impossible access another man’s full view of the world.
