A Primitive Tribe in the Modern World is an imaginary archaeological museum, analyzing the prehistorical cultural layers through contextual simulation, restoring pure and spiritual connection between human and natural environment under the Capitalism and serves as nourishment for individual’s soul today.

The museum shows a collection of crafts that are created through a long-term imitation of repetitive physical labor activities from prehistoric times. The crafts are marks and symbols with ambiguous visual languages between contemporary and prehistoric, made by industrial materials with which maintaining their original texture, documenting the sub-conscious sensory experience arise naturally during the imitation.
