doesn’t have words.
It does not speak intellectually.
It is about emotion.
Light or the
absence of light, what we call “shadow”, make us experience
weightlessness and stimulate associations that lead to emotions.
The installation Window Sash from the series In the Shade of an Olive
Tree is a figurative object and, as such, suggests a vague storyline.
Yes, at the same time, the element of time and motion takes our
abstract thinking to the next level.
The window sash’s shadow travels in the empty space during 24 hours
with the help of an ancient Soviet slide projector placed on the
specially programmed Lazy Susan. Color of the light that “falls” from
the window is controlled by painted 35 mm glass plates that the slide
projector switches at the “appropriate” time of day.
Of course, it is of no small importance at what point in time the
24-hour cycle begins.
