Beware! (2018)

 

"Beware!" is a site-specific installation at Nida Art Colony. The work encompasses a range of red warning sign stickers, stuck on public walls and floors at strategic locations in the building. The warnings themselves, viewed individually, would for the most part not be out of place in a public building where security is a priority. But seen altogether, they convey an infantilizing, paranoid and over-protective view of the people frequenting the building and point to a society obsessed with security at all costs.
