Art in Corona Lockdown - Interview with Ferhat Özgür, Zagreb

"During the period of the lockdown I was unable to work in my workshop on a daily basis, like I used to, even though it is only a fifteen-minute walk away from home. Yet this did not prove to be an obstacle for me to continue working on various ideas. Preserving my belief that the virus cannot be superior to creativity, I tried to enrich the freedom of loneliness by staging a ‘one-man performance’ at home in order to negotiate the absurdness and surreal contingencies of photography".

The Fauve group defied the realism and representation of Impressionism, and instead used strong colour and shapes to express emotion.
