Going Cuckoo

this is a working cuckoo clock which chimes on the hour, it is powered electrically with an internal digital clock. Like all creatures of the earth the Common Cuckoo population is in decline due to the use of insecticides and habitat loss. In the period of coronavirus and lockdown brought about by yet another zoonotic disease, ‘Going Cuckoo’ seems to parallel the dystopia, as an imagined nostalgia of life lost.

Richard Paton

Invisible forces: they push us, they pull us, some we know about, most go unnoticed. As we make our best attempts to steer a steady course through life we are frequently buffeted by forces beyond our control. Time goes forwards, backwards, sometimes it stops still, perhaps it doesn’t even exist, light sheds light when we aren’t in the dark. Cosmic radiation streams through the empty space of our bodies, the earth’s magnetic field does it’s best to defend us from the sun’s blast. Incremental gaseous imbalances threaten the future of our ephemeral consciousness. The imperceptible spin of the earth hangs onto itself by gravity, it will exist long after our brief glimpse of it. As pressure from above makes the wind blow to the edges of a compass, I do my best to navigate the flux. I breath, I think, I make.

CARING PROTECTING INFLUENCING These are images of a group of nine cradle shaped objects. They convey a variety of perspectives we can choose from when looking at the process of receiving a child as well as looking at possible relationships between us and our children, might they be born already or not, might we be their biological parents or not.

Sea Horse
Sea Horse is inspired by a small antique bronze sculpture found in a temple dedicated to Poseidon, the god of the sea, and situated nearby Kalamata, my hometown. It provides an insight how people living about 2.500 years ago in Greece thought a mythical horse living in the sea would look like. The rare ancient miniature figurine is on continuous display in the archeological museum in Kalamata and it delivers an impression how mental and mechanical skills can turn spiritual ideas into visual and haptic objects. I do admire the practical way of thinking of the early artists and intend with this modern piece of art to raise awareness for these antique skills. This piece was initially created in plaster and additionally cast in bronze only recently. The bronze stand is part of the sculpture and cannot be disconnected.

Void is an installation about energy, a person who is not there, but whose presence can be presumed, and a solid wind blows from the east. The two are connected, but the 'how' is an open story.

A Moment in a Glance 1917-2017
A young man, bald shaven, holding a skull in his hands. We don't know what he thinks, what he feels, who he is. His eyes are closed and he seems lost in concentration, his fingers rest firmly on the skull of another soldier. Was it a young man who died a century ago in France, perhaps? One stares at us, the other looks inside.

MODULES II
The cuboid-like shape is a modified Platonic volume. It becomes a module in an architectural structure or a setting that can be hidden or visible. Inspired by the traces of old buildings one might find in an ancient place, the installation calls to mind how these crumbling individual components now only serve as silent witnesses. However, at one time may have been the key element of a wall, or ceiling, etc. Regardless of their prior functionality, the aesthetic potential overrides the previous story.
