Hell, with its harsh and aggressive nature, is mysteriously enchanting and one of the most intriguing concepts for me. I have been interested in the topic of suffering, discomfort, and the surrealism that unites them for years. It is a fantasy world, where I can play around and decipher moral themes.
The main element of my bachelor’s thesis is a book titled “Inferno”, which serves as a manual of the processes taking place in Hell. It describes how the system works, who the people living there are, and what sins they suffer from. It is a world unknown to us, a mix between real and unreal, lost in time and space. Hell exists based on laws of physics that are incomprehensible to us, the discovery of which would take more than eternity.
The book has been compiled by a fictional unidentified author and artist. Their only task in life is to document what is happening in Hell. After completing their task and finishing the book, the unknown author ceases to exist, leaving only the book behind as evidence of the world of torment. The book is complemented by large charcoal drawings depicting moments of suffering souls stuck in Hell.
