All good things aim at the same point, 2013

Inspiration by English writer and philosopher Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874 – 1936), who wrote: “But – in my opinion – all good things aim at the same point.” was the primary impulse to create the exhibition project “All good things aim at the same point”. The concept of exhibition was supported by natural gravity of banal objects which are integral part of climbers gear.  Freely falling object in a space loses its original form, thus became abstract and forms a metaphor of time, captures a move and defines the direction of a fall. Falling t-shirt also emphasize climbers’ balance on a very thin line. Author transforms this motion and almost amorphous objects into wood sculptures. He uses similar deformation to transform real objects, which are part of the new cycle All good things… (sleeping bag, t-shirt, trousers and jacket). He is not interested in real prefigure of objects, but he emphasizes their motion possibilities, despite the static predisposition. Complex sculpture installation captures the moment in which all objects fall in the different direction, defining and creating an abstract territory in a gallery space.
