Rats

Babis Venetopoulos, through a series of self-portraits, tries out different social roles and mental conditions, as if they were dresses. In his work “Rats”, we find the darkest version of his practice. A space that is archetypal, moist and  dark, without defined boundaries, surrounds him. Naked in the most dishonorable position, together with rats, we see his staying trapped and surrendered to the gaze. Is this image a dive into the subconscious or a dive into the toughest reality?
