We Walk alone, we talked to the wind, fell in love with the shadows and the beginning or end of our stay here, we may feel guilty for having betrayed ourselves a thousand times with the sensation of falling infinitely within the whole.

 

Build paradise it is the great challenge of the human condition, and we all want that paradise remains closer to us, less and less distant, less and less idealized, more palpable, more habitable. Firdus creation is inspired by the work of artist Christian Boltansky. His work is based on finding the absence of war, children, daily life or loss of identity. That's why using recognizable elements with which the viewer can establish a relationship of empathy: from used clothing, old furniture or going through old boxes of cookies. Boltanski compares his work to a mirror, intended to recognize people in.

We follow the greek  mythology where the important journey is not at the end arriving   into the paradise ,rather crossing the hell.
