In a world that commodifies every aspect of life, forming a sense of personal relevance can be a daunting challenge. John Bjerklie’s installation, Dreams & Delusions: Do Not Be Afraid, illustrates the artist’s attempts at constructing a value system that reflects his own standards. Inspired by the Stanley Kramer’s film It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Bjerklie’s installation deftly arranges assorted objects-at-hand like stand-ins for the thoughts and perspectives that play a role in his efforts to attain self-respect and artistic enfranchisement.
