2018. Metal, PETG polyester
Intensities is perhaps the most abstract object in the exhibition,
yet it retains an allusion to a (former, future?) figure. It
is a polyester form that has captured the shape of the human
figure, like a contemporary plastic "canvas", in which the figure
still exists, but it has lost its tangible material forms.
Inside, only the silhouette of the figure and the horizontal
lines crossing it remain. The minimalist silhouette of the figure
inside rejects contexts and references, leaving only one
– the recording of inner processes, barely tangible thoughts
and sensory movements in silence. It is like the encephalograms
of the brain or the sound charts of music creation
programmes. The equally spaced horizontal lines could in
themselves signify silence, zero activity, but they are distorted
and thus given life by the polyester "shell" that perpetuates
the surface of the material forms of the figure.
