The Importance of Being (Honest)

 

 

The sculpture was made as the ultimate combination of the material gathered from around the Jalovik Art Colony – stone, wire, and plastics. The work came as a reaction to the situation in which artists/participants, having found themselves outside of their daily routine and the settled mediums in which they express themselves, let themselves enter a time-limited isolation and freedom which in turn also open the door to honesty, both in work and in everyday communication related to work. As a result, the exhibited artwork asks and puts to the spectator the questions such as: where am I going, what am I doing, what do I want, and – who am I? The key to the questions and to interpreting the work is, as the title of the works suggests, in honesty.
