A hazug paradoxona / Liar's paradox (2015)
neon, 2 parts, 40 × 400 cm each

A paradox is a set of statements that lead to contradiction or to a conclusion contradictory to common sense. Liar’s Paradox – similarly to the works Propaganda and Cui prodest – investigates the relationship between linguistic expression and the intention of communication by revealing the inherent interpretational problems in the following statements:
“The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.”
The neon caption imitating handwriting evokes a form of communication appearing in public spaces: commercial signs created with the intention of persuasion.
