IN THE CLOSET⃣ presents ”LOOP SOUP 1.0”, Video installation.
The new conformism has taken its claws on our society and we sit flickering through clips and images behind a screen on a tortured planet. A closet is a restrain or conform that is the same for all of us. As if there is something to hide or not talk about or not to be seen or heard. The conform or the closet is the same as any app where one is representing one selves after specific measures, or tic tok memes. The whole world has become a closet, now you have to go into a closet to be free, and see the world. Welcome home.
