Vicious Cycle by Isa Setton
Limited edition of 20 + 2AP
"When people are single for a long time, they are told something is "wrong" with them, they should" get to know somebody ". But when this actually happens and they want to spend a lot of their time with their partner, they are called "boring", their friends say "they should finally finish it and go out with them again." Again such a double standard, which I find hard to ignore. This collage is part of the "tu me manques" series I started in 2015. If you remove people or objects from a picture, you can completely change its meaning and cause the viewer to think in terms of a scene. "
Isa Setton works in several media with a distinct, colourful style. The limited editions she has created with collasta are based on collages that deal with everyday irony, politics and modern relationships.

About the artist
Isa Setton was born in 1992 in Germany and studied art history and business, she lives and works in Berlin.
She has been making art for years and is constantly experimenting with new media and techniques to find the suitable way to express the underlying idea or concept of a work.
Always on the hunt for something that inspires her, her works are about relationships with people, contemporary art, current social and political debates, pop culture and interesting facts about all kinds of subjects ranging from medical advancements to fun facts she read on the internet.
Most of her works are either collages, photographs or paintings, but her conceptual approach as well as her experiments broaden this spectrum continuously. A lot of her works are colourful, many ironic, ambiguous and cheeky but often with a serious political or ethical topic.
