"I have made various pictures and texts on the subject of job Interviews. This one is inspired by dark and surreal paintings by the Spanish artist Javier Mayoral*. And just as dark and surreal were the job interviews I had in my life. Or of which I have heard. The job interview is a myth, a symbol of great power imbalances. It can be cruel or absurd - as the haircut of the lady in my painting.
At the job interview, you try to portray the person you think you are wanted to be. It is a masquerade, a pressure to disguise. One chooses a certain hairstyle, and certain clothes and acts after rehearsed tactics. We strive to show a lovely surface of ourselves. Of course, all this is part of life - but it becomes problematic when only one of the two parties has to fake it. Then it can lead to Kafkaesque situations, to abuse of power of the worst kind.
No one should be forced to wear a certain hairstyle just because of someone else's opinion. Like the woman in my picture, for example, who actually only looks good with hairstyle five. But who had to wear all the other hairstyles too - just because I wanted her to."
