Stay at home
bird cage, toilet paper
“Stay Home“ criticizes the narrow-mindedness of mass consumerism and commodification in late capitalism. The feverish hunt for toilet paper which happened in western supermarkets in the early days of the pandemic exposed its geographically disproportionate consumption, which saw in 2018 25 kilograms of toilet paper used per person in North America against the average global per capita usage of just 5 kilograms a year. While “Stay home” evokes the daily experience of Social Distancing, Quarantine and Isolation in the COVID-19 era, it reflects on the intimate and daily dimension of being trapped by the privileged anxieties of western consumer societies.
