Inside The Web
In today’s society, we often find ourselves chained by different problems such as social networks, over-consumption, work, unhealthy relationships. Emancipation and self-fulfillment are therefore key elements needed in the pursuit of happiness. To achieve this, however, we must face many obstacles, challenges, and hinders. The objective of the new ongoing Hinders collection is to show how much humanity is blinded by everyday issues not realizing those chains around.
With these photographs, the artist wants not only to analyze our society but also to give a solution. The intention is to approach this question by taking the side of the liberation of oneself by resolving one’s inner fears through a work of reflection and introspection. In his works, Idan Wizen tries to describe, in a subtle and oniric way, an ode to free will, individual decision, and the ability of each person to break his chains.
Author: Idan Wizen is a French Israeli artist living in Paris. Graduated in 2008 from the London University of the Arts, he then turned to visual art that was both humanistic and committed.
While Idan challenged himself by creating art working with regular people, most of whom have never done a professional photoshoot. His artistic direction and the lighting composition realize a dreamlike image with a unique atmosphere, and yet it remains ultra-realistic.
Idan Wizen’s projects share the unwavering desire to make the spectator ponder; his photographs push the viewer to look diferently at the world, in order to understand the real message and see beyond what the machine is feeding them.
