Statement

I oscillate around sculpturing expression all the time, for myself feeling the need to approach this pure and clean phenomenon. Similar to other forms of fine arts as they come about nowadays, including the blurred boundaries between them (some call them permeable confines), sculpture, too, does not require any special treatment, any protection from “loss of value”. The feeling which I have now and then, urging me to redefine and once again resharpen the boundaries of the field I am dealing with, probably stems from the tornado that swept through the world of sculpture, formerly established as one of the pillars of fine arts, mainly in the past century most of all. The paradigm may have changed; the change in the essence of a sculpture has most probably not, however.

I am an author of visually ambivalent objects – sometimes, it is an organic sculpture, another time, it may be a conceptual installation. However, I believe that this never fully and precisely defines or classifies the things that I do. This is of no importance, though. They are my advance sensors, haptic objects which inspect and feel the limits of my body, of my space, of this multiple barrier present within me and outside of me. I am passionate about knowing what it looks like outside, both within me and off me. Anyway, this clear vision which I have from time to time, becomes speedily as disordered and chaotic as everything which has whizzed around me so far, as everything I do, how I feel. These are logical parts of the chaos. Of my chaos.

My work consists of parallel, seemingly disparate lines, which collide one with another and complement each other. Despite first sight, everything faces the certain defining of my sculpture form. I compose the space and the space forms me, myself. The seeming serenity of one form is the exact print of the Dionysian pole of another form. The viewer himself is forced to find a relation to the presented shape-realization, as I myself must find. I see things clearly only after I have articulated them.

I use ordinary materials, not special in any way, clearly categorized from our everyday point of view. I touch them, form them, and insert them into clear and common relations, proportions, stories which turn grey as soon as I leave them. Indolent communicators, objects waiting to be touched.

I keep on assuring myself that it is I who is touching.
