festifools"A Flashback" by Jessie Singh "My piece shows two forms of the same person. On one side, there is a woman's body wearing a nice dress, but a skull where the head should be. On the other, the face is clean, hair golden, but there is a skeleton where the body should be. I created this piece to ask the question: Who is more human? We can be beautiful, attractive, and glowing, but leave our humanity behind, as we go to work everyday as machines, or run after money, fame, and power like animals after prey. On the left side, although the head is an empty skull, a person buried is depicted as full of life, an attractive body with nice clothes. The right side is a skeleton because all the flesh has been left behind; in life, the figure is nothing more than lifeless. The two sides complement each other; where one is lifeless, the other has the lively characteristic. From the contrast, I hope the audience considers the question: which side is more human?"
