“The idea of “Burnout” was born after a year and a half of forced creative lethargy caused by Covid -19. At first I felt anger, then empathy for those around me, then self-pity for my own uselessness, and finally humility. In humility, to be without having to and without wanting. It’s just you. Then I realized how long I had lived under the dictatorship of the modern self-demand – to be responsible, to be successful, to be reliable, to be, to be… anything but yourself!

“Burnout” is a performance with which we try to whisper to you to wake up and live. Not tomorrow. Now!”
