split ends

2017

 

 

 

Collaborative project took a turn towards the language. I visualise my concept by making numerous tiny sculptures (their number is divisible by three). These sculptures represent the seeds of a new alphabet made from observing split ends of hair. A line being a metaphor of a story, continuation, yet gaining further dynamism through division, into many different stories, as happened within our project. One of the objects is a woolen carpet. The structure of wool embodies continuity, whilst the dimensions of the object derive from the distance between London and Katowice (1562 km) which was mentioned during our conversations. A smoke generator will cover the objects with a fog, stretching their status between presence and apparent absence.

 

this work was made during a collaboration with Sybilla Skałuba and Jonathan Slaughter and is a part of polish-english project called Connect, which was shown in
PLY Gallery in London / UK and Rondo Sztuki in Katowice / PL
