StolenSpace Gallery is excited to open ‘Panopticon’, a solo exhibition by the artist Tomo77. This exhibit explores post-pandemic World, through the device of the “panopticon”. Tomo77 invites the viewer into this world of surveillance and observation, with reflection on the role of the artist.
The panopticon is a disciplinary concept brought to life in the form of a central observation tower placed within a circle of prison cells, where the prisoners cannot determine whether they are being watched by the guard at any given moment. Living under constant surveillance, there is a continuous fear of being observed, even if there is nobody there to observe them.
