My work "The Death of Objects" was a part of exhibition "AntiSalon" in AKC Medika, 14.9.212.
The exhibition organised by a small group of young artists as an answer to "Salon Mladih" (official HDLU's event).
„The Death of Objects“
The work "The Death of Objects" is a document of different subjects in a moment of their life and their metaphorical deaths.
Their existence makes sense in a purpose that we see in them, the desire to possess them, the current impression that they are needed. After the initial enchanting mediating the effects, through the process of adaptation, habits, usage, theybecome part of everyday life. At a certain period of time in our lives they fade, die. These dead things do not disappear, they stay around us, creating a museum of fossils, the tomb of the consumer society. Memory of the first spark, the one for which we wanted it disappears and there remains an empty shell.
The layout, right and left wings, the shape of squares and rectangles determine the nature of the initial items in them. The right rectangle, oblong, apparently more flexible, with rich framework is filled with mostly archetypal female subjects, and the left wing, square, static and sturdy men. Their ratio depends on the location and layout of the two opposing poles but the content to partially overlaps. They content through time and habits begans to resemble each other in the chaos of whiteness and dullness.
"The death of Objects," is a death of all unimportan things around us, all imposed by some external influence as important and necessary. Only by considering everyone will find the objects and people that time can not touch. Because memories of the person who gave them to us or lived event, become a personal item in the general transience, not the pressure and obligation but a stimulation to a new research, and freedom. Awareness of the imposed leads to liberation from the dead objects and its repression, the deconstruction of their remains to a freer world.
