"Kein Schwein ruft mich an" Erik Pevernagie , oil on canvas(60 x 94 cm)


When the river of emotions bursts its banks and expectations go over the edges of reality, the brain creates hallucinations. Ringxiety-stricken people feel illusive vibrating alerts and hear phantom phone rings since the absence of ringing generates scaring emptiness and destroys their self-esteem.

Some seem to be desynchronized in their relationships. They feel oppressed as they cannot move forward together and at the same pace. Their thinking is often incongruent, their motivation disparate.

The phone could be a mediator since it creates an impression to be a highly reliable friend. However, in the end, it causes a sense of loneliness, since it divides more than it unites. Eventually, it appears to be not such a good friend but a ghost friend.

In spite of the development of all kinds of networks, the acute loss of communication and isolation strikes hard. Nobody seems to care, in the end. Not even a pig. "Kein Schwein ruft an." (Not a single soul is calling me.)

People are not dying of lack of money but lack of esteem and awareness.

Phenomenon : contact, isolation, telecommunication

Factual starting point : woman with telephone
