"Monde fou" is a name of 16th century world map dressed court jester -fool`s cap- which hides several different historical motto quotes inside. When truth had to be uttered by court jester then we automatically understand the restrained situation. And this particular map is directly resonating its dissonant skepticism. As artists possible situation on our time, voluntarily in the game of realm but as an outsider and maybe even in a fool`s cap.
