ROUND 2: SONJA BEN
The leitmotif of the play “Castel mind: Battle strategy of archery. Shoot the rainbow man to cross the wall.” It is based on a visual narrative of a strategy of mental self-deception. It is about tricking the mind to get rid of inherited behaviour patterns, which have become obsolete and sabotage us, in order to achieve our personal goals.
Sonja Ben is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Barcelona. He focuses his work on the construction of a personal plastic language that connects the subconscious with the conscious. It deals with ascetic issues such as that of the inner demons and their acceptance from an ironic perspective. Sonja neglects the representation of the real and reinterprets it using a fun and colorful style. Influenced by the children’s world, symbolism, platform video games, comic and Japanese animated films.
