“Grillz” is an artwork that invites contemplation about the human desire for recognition, it emphasizes the allure of status symbols and their enduring presence throughout human history. Männa’s concept of the sculpture involves the potential of the viewer’s active involvement. During the “Path” exhibition, performance artist Henri Hütt unlocked this potential. Through his performance, he illuminated the notion of futility in the repetitive cycle of breaking and fixing the same entity, ultimately highlighting the irrational and absurd aspects of human behaviour.
