“You were not made to live your lives as brutes, but to be followers of virtue and knowledge. “


Nefes is part of a two-year project on Joseph Beyus’ artistic work. “Every  man is an artist” is a conception  strictly embodied by creative commitment, which should be and can be afforded by everyone who is able to shape his way of being and  living.

Nefes faces boundaries between man and art which  becomes  the main concept,  as much essential as breathing, in order to overcome everyday limit and let us live our lives not as brutes.

Some people placed  in a certain time and space, built,  through everyday action, a dialogue with audience who recognize themselves in such creative act without feeling disoriented.
