In Western Society happiness is a highly valued emotional state and people are surrounded by positive quotes and motivational sayings. Happiness is not a bad thing, however problems arise when you come to believe you should always feel this way.
This exhibition takes a stand against the focus on happiness as a goal and celebrates all aspects of life. Through assemblage and mixed media artworks, Backhausen invites you to explore the nuances of life - with kindness, humour and a bit of attitude.
