The sculptures presented at the exhibition are an attempt to illustrate the tension between two bodies that are competitively oriented towards each other. They are inspired by contact sports such as wrestling or MMA. The state of a strong emotional tension that accompanies situations of real danger as well as sports fights leads to a physical reaction of one’s body. The sculptures are at the moment of confronting their dynamics, which suggests some kind of contact: it is the contact with a new dangerous world with a lack of trust and the risk caused by the presence of another object/human in the same space. This is the last unconditional reflex that has remained in us since the pre-Internet times. Ultimately, they are monuments of confrontation, a memory of contact and physical relation. The works are made entirely of synthetic materials, they play with the contemporarily available materials such as foam, plastic, and rubber. Their dynamic, elastic figure is only a sketch of one’s body.
“My work is an insight into the future, a narrative of the conflict that will take place between the various corporeities of the future. When creating this work, I was wondering about the times the above-mentioned corporeities will be living in and how their relationship with the environment would look like. They are the forms of visualizing the fears that are appearing on the horizon; the concerns about what a man will have to face to survive. I believe that humanity will survive everything. Maybe not in such numbers, maybe in a different shape, in a different environment, but it will survive. Perhaps this thought is more frightening to me than the thought of extinction”.
