Constructing the New Order

The second week of my work became more settled , I gradually started using materials I chose in the first week to have a good process of figuring out/ putting elements together in the new order….  My work seems to be very controlled in many cases. But this control is derived from utopian aspiration to Harmony and balance…
The first series of work I called ‘The New Eldorado’ as a reference to pop culture and the myth built around the golden age of prosperity. Golden plastic lid, purity of blue, orange and White… Colour is another indication of unifying and enabling symbiosis within the object.  I was also experimenting with already existing natural ‘presupposition’ of brought objects. I use them in assemblages, mini- installation, Solaris, with mirrors, metal bars, round shapes of the records, lampshades…

The elements are assembled and constructed in a particular way, they may resemble maquette of the city, dysfunctional furniture or imaginary design subliminally referencing modernism, Post-Duchampian tradition of ready-made, interior design of Bauhaus and domesticity…the references are endless, the objects are open like a text for further interpretation…The Game is never-ceasing, established rules of having limitation within plurality was a great experiment…

At the end of the week I was tempted to create ironic harmony, merely maintaining a balance within the assembled objects. Orange mini columns, reminiscent of negative furniture, are fragilly supporting each other balancing on the red string…
The process of creating my work was so similar to the process of my usual art practice. I found the project relieving and inspiring.  Also I had a chance to collaborate/ or rather interact not only with fellow artists ( Nicola Dale, Jason Tylor, Andy Parker), but also with enthusiastic audience.
