Unemployed

Wall-decor for the exhibition on colaboration between product designers and illustrators Outside Of the Book Margins in ULUPUH Gallery in Zagreb. The exhibition explored the posibility of illustration beyond the usal book and magazine usage. My work dealt with some social issues. It combined the usual elements seen among the unemployed people who gather around back entrance of some stores waiting for the job or opportunity: bottles of bear, salami, cigaret buds, cheep sandwiches… The seriousness and depression of such situation is depicted like a cartoon scene, underlying the apsurdity of the social situation in Croatia. Product designer Ada Kezić  intervened on the beer boxes on which jobless people usually sits at such locations, and transformed them into simple but elegant chairs and tables.
