System / mistake

2014

Plaster, metal, wood, glass, 3 videos: records from the action different sizes

This installation is made of three separate objects and carries a common theme - system.

 

Two of the objects use basic mechanics to run the whole system – water circulation. The final one uses electricity. The electrically powered structure refers to modern technology highlighting the deliberate imperfection in products giving them a shorter lifecycle. The deliberate imperfection is a component which purposely harms the product, shortly after the guarantee, to disrupt the whole operation of the machine. So we can observe the process of gradual degradation, giving rise to a new paradox, showing the importance of these works.

 

From these primitive compositions we can use a traditional material (plaster) to transform them into static sculptures.
