Peter Leja Plan B

How is a B-horror poster different from a soaked distorted photo of the Virgin Mary? We often attach deeper meaning to objects than they actually have. We create icons from them that seem magical to us, but they say nothing about the true values of people. Whether we are talking about religious objects to which we add meaningless seriousness or kitschy souvenirs. Many times, they are just empty objects with a "gilded" cover reflecting the taste, which we are simply attracted to. It is these packaging and prints that have become the inspiration in my work called Plan B. I deliberately select tasteless forms deprived of quality content and connect them with kitschy shallow packaging, photos and printing. Through the intersection of 3D objects and 2D photographs, they acquire new meanings referring to distorted reality and content emptiness.
