2. You’re Doing Great!!!
After an invitation for exhibiting “Bosnian Girl 2” at Art Fair Tbilisi, and not having funds to pay for a stand - I’ve decided to create a performative exhibition of my work in migration through the art fair; placing the “Bosnian Girl 2” and its statement on a trashy cloth hanger, showing thumbs up to everyone and documenting it badly.
Not having a stand because I'm poor to pay for one /// Showing thumbs up to everyone who could pay for one /// Making kids show middle fingers /// Confusing security guards /// Walking to each stand with my middle-finger-work on a cloth hanger /// Going to toilet and peeing, also eating a Kebab /// Making sure everyone feels that their work is great /// Being a Hypocrite /// Showing thumbs up next to a fancy car and they made me leave /// Wearing silk clothes /// Going out in the streets with my work /// Documenting it all with a trashy camera
