Homo festivus (in Latin) is a societal concept developed by sociologist Philippe Murray. He speaks of the idea of ​​a Western man who has resigned from his history, stripped of all forms of culture, transcendence and identity, and to whom only the permanent party and spectacle remains to feel alive.

The character in the painting, quite androgynous and outrageously made-up, seems to smile or moan, but above all sinks into the dark waters of a West losing its identity.

In the background, the city seems to be burning, as if bombarded with strange shells.

And a text says in Latin: HOMO FESTIVUS SUBMERSI which could be translated as “the festive man drowns”…

So would the party be over soon?

L’homo festivus (en latin) est un concept sociétal développé par le sociologue Philippe Murray. Il parle de l’idée d’un homme occidental démissionnaire de son histoire, dépouillé de toute forme de culture, de transcendance et d’identité, et à qui il ne reste que la fête et le spectacle permanents pour se sentir vivre.

Le personnage du tableau, assez androgyne et outrageusement maquillé semble sourire ou gémir, mais surtout coule dans les eaux sombres d’un Occident en perte d’identité.

Au fond, la ville semble brûler, comme bombardée d’obus étranges.

Et un texte dit en latin : HOMO FESTIVUS SUBMERSI que l’on pourrait traduire par ‘’l’homme festif se noie’’…

La fête serait-elle donc bientôt finie ?
