Once Ant Climbed Into Astronaut’s Ear Exhibition Video

 

 

Statement

Abstract identity, workaday spectacularity. Body and spirit, artificial and natural, real and abstract. Collision gives a spark. The dialogue between these two extremes is growing by itself, as the flesh grows on the carcass. That carcass becomes a framework, peeped in the environment, taken out of context. For acute attention to each subject seems appropriate to use the language of abstraction. Flexible, vibrant and absorbing new meanings out of context. As a result, we obtain artifacts of the events. Chronicle, which is documenting itself.

Абстрактная айдентика, повседневная спектакулярность. Тело и дух, искусственное и природное, реальное и абстрактное. Сталкивание, как и соударение дает искру. Диалог между этими полюсами нарастает сам по себе, как плоть нарастает на каркас. Этим каркасом служат модели и правила, подсмотренные в окружающей среде, заимствованные, вырванные из контекста. Для обострения внимания на каждом конкретном предмете мне кажется уместным использовать язык абстракции. Гибкий, вибрирующий и впитывающий новые смыслы из контекста. В итоге получаются артефакты событий. Хроника, документирующая саму себя.
