This daruma (Japanese figurines, somersaults without arms or legs, which make it possible to make a wish) speaks of the extreme violence of police repression which causes demonstrators to lose hands, feet and eyes (Bodhidarma, which is the original model of daruma, has, according to legend, also lost its limbs, because of sitting meditation for too long); the slow death of the republican ideal, the wish for a better system (on the daruma, one eye is filled in on the occasion of the wish, and the second when it is granted), and since darumas are often culbutos, it symbolizes the ability to always get back on one's feet despite chaos and turbulence.

The cockade on the belly is of course related to 1789, and the addition of the color gold in its center has 2 meanings: trying to keep a heart of gold, beyond abstract ideologies, and adding a fourth value to Freedom Equality Fraternity: Responsibility (towards others, towards the environment, towards one's actions and their consequences). Finally, the kanji that thrones at the center of the cockade is that of Buddha, which is also amusingly that of France.

The loop with Bodhidharma Buddhism (father of Chan in China / Zen in Japan) is closed, and is part of a hope for clarity of mind and a deep search for truth.

Jæn
France
  • KAZoART artist since 2020
  • 8 works

Jæn combines digital and traditional magic to paint, draw or sculpt hybrids of intimate and collective mythologies, leaving the often psychedelic and pop surrealist works with areas of indeterminacy, which can be freely resonated with one's own imagination. He has extensively explored the lands of creativity: street art, 3D printing, virtual and augmented reality, music, photography, animation, storytelling and research.

As an artist and illustrator, Jæn strives to create a breach in the rational mind of the viewer, and widen this door to things over which words slide, but not feelings.
