Ambivalent Paradox, 2017; papiermache; 1,80 x 1,80m
Art is a paradox that sometimes we only pretend to be understanding.
From its purpose, to the types of art, it is constantly twisting, twirling, reversing, as a theme park slide.
I associate this with gravity. Everything has to go down at some point, be it in place or not.
I love the ambivalence of the playground we call “art scene”, and art not being in a default system, while having its own nucleus cannot be judged as any other field. Therefore I took the idea of an abandoned slide that I was fascinated with, analyzed the fallen pieces and composed my own slide. Impossible to be used because of the gravity, would it still be called a slide?
