I work with the potential that I might be a DOG,
12. - 15. December

Close and personal about ADHD.

These days, it seems we have become more easily distractible, like children bubbling with infant, wild-like tendencies. At the same time, we are expected to exert more self-control over these “natural” behaviors, making some of us feel like ‘animals in a cage’.

 The Dog was domesticated about thirty thousand years ago and its wild behavior was kept in check by its human masters. Feeling like an ‘animal in a cage’ is also how Yaniv would describe the social pressures that are there to tame his natural enthusiasm and hyperactivity. Owning the feeling that he might be a domesticated dog is a more liberating way of exploring his own hyper tendencies and potentials within the existing power structures of art, culture and society.
