Nietzsche-influenced freethinker and artist Jozef Mrva sees his work as an experiment in ritualistic expression. His recycled cardboard masks take after animals and invite people to immerse themselves in new roles to create a primitive identity. Convinced that aesthetics without metaphysics is nonsense, this Czech creator encourages people to use design as a medium to express their will. Mrva‘s use of readily available cardboard also gives way to an image that is both rough and fragile, and allows for the masks to be disposed in a sustainable way.
