Have a Lollipop engages with issues to do with oppressive ideologies; illusions temporarily trapped in otherwise “promising” systems of power and politics. This explicitly caustic installation is granted in a large-scale photograph of a series of readymade lollipops, a sort of commodity of representation, whereby difference seems to be an insignificant detail absorbed in cruel systems of political players. Lines of appealing lollipops disappoint the viewer as the hardened sucrose doesn’t impart the impact the real ingredients actually have on the consumer; in a similar way, democratic systems today do not represent the actual needs of people, causing, therefore, a greater dissonance in public opinion.
