i'm free
a bird

In "I'm free as a bird," Omid, as an artist, challenged his identity as an 'art student' by assuming the role of a 'KFC worker.' This performance questioned concepts of privilege, inclusion, and the possibility of creating art within a capitalist framework. He documented his work at KFC with a Go-Pro camera, capturing repetitive actions in the confined spaces of fast-food restaurants. The performance culminated in his escape from the art academy, filming himself as he ran through the streets of The Hague. Then he used screenshots from this footage to create a series of unconventional images through screen-printing, defying traditional art-making methods and aesthetics.
