Isolation (The
   room of the Last Judgements)

When I created this work, I didn't even think it would have the importance it has today in 2020. Originally, I wanted to create an enclosed space where the visitor could escape the noise, chaos of the outside world and other visual experiences of exhibition spaces. Visitors can shut down and meditate as well as rethink the great things in life. This is also encouraged by the enlarged images of Christ Pantocrator covering the walls, all of which are large copies of medieval secco murals. This year, the escape room has taken on a new meaning as pandemic protection requires people to lock themselves in their homes and minimize social contact. This box, which looks like a store-bought Cold War nuclear bunker on the outside, can be very useful for this.
