2017 THE TOOLS OF EXPERIENCE 1701 at The Formula of the Present | Dunartcom

The installation is a reflection on Kazimir Malevich’s white on white and white on black squares, a ‘neutralisation’ of space: a white frame on black and a black frame on white is expressed in a dark space, a ‘black box’ simulating an underground party space (1). The objects are backlit with LEDs, the aim is to formulate a light space in which one extreme is glare and the other is darkness, inviting the viewer to search for an inner point of rest. In the philosophy of the installation, the points of infinity are repeating or infinitely varying sets. By imagining infinity we imagine an indeterminate unknown, a particular determinacy of the points of infinity as time can be interpreted as a deadlock. A deadlock is a state of shifting from one reality or a visionary reality to another reality or visionary reality. The techno-figure is not merely an aesthetic reflection, since the underground party culture was created in a social environment where the aim was to create an idealism, a total absence of matter, a release of energy, a comfortable environment. On this point, it is deeply linked to the suprematist theory of Kazimir Malevich. As Zoltán Sebők puts it, “Suprematism is anti-utilitarian and energetic. It denies the reality of the material world because it considers it […] a correlate of various complex, purely energetic processes. Consequently, it regards as unreal everything that could be the object of a utilitarian desire. The artist’s task is to discover and to embody in images the energetic processes at work behind the visible, tangible world.'(2)

FLICKER videoinstallation 2024

Visual language used in the collection evokes the phenomenon of the blinking light through breath delicious layers and filmy occurrences, which – through continuously changing light and tones – automatically induce the eye to attend actively, shift out from calm, and stimulate cognition. Details show up and fade away, the viewer becomes observer by means of the active participation of the eyesight – for example, twinkling, amazement, that is, by alternate phases of openness-closeness. This circumstance, the eye’s ‘respiration’ provokes assertive action in the attentiveness to the picture.
