VIEW IN MY ROOM
My robot is made up of elements of buildings. We can recognize decorative architectural elements on the figure. We can often feel angels, female faces, lions, etc., observing us from the facades of buildings. My figure’s facial features are not typically “robot-like”, because it has a face that we could see on the building facades. It can protect buildings from destruction (see the title, “Street Fighter”). It also aims to protect the era and its values, uniting these with the progressive values that transgress the ages. The defining street views and emblematic buildings come from an innovative era, the results of the Industrial Revolution. This era resembles our digital/virtual revolution, in which robots and automation play an important role. The figure is made mostly from EPS (expondent polystyrene), which is traditionally used for insulation of building facades. It’s a characteristically long-lasting and dense material. A figure created from this material, however, is quite fragile. To prevent damage, a layer of two-component resin is applied to coat the surface of the figure. This layer protects against the sun, high temperature, and rain, so it aids in creating a figure that can be exhibited and stored outdoors. As the figure is not heavy, it is easily transported.

My work is closely connected to the region I live in and to its history. The period between the second half of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century is considered to be one of the golden ages of the region. The most visible evidence of this period observed today can be found in architectural buildings (public buildings, churches and private residences) that remain. The evidence of these styles was not only visible on the outside of these buildings and homes. The decoration of the interior, the furniture and everyday personal items also reflected the inhabitants’ social status. Aside from masterpieces, one could also find paintings, tapestries, decorative items, utensils, etc., which would today be considered “kitsch,” as they were often the adapted versions and provincial transcriptions of works and items from larger cultural centres. I make allusions to pseudo-versions of these items in my work. My attitude toward them is complex. At times I treat them with melancholy by projecting utopian views of the past, the “good old days.” Anachronisms can also be found in my work. They are present with copious amounts of cynicism – many of the older pieces seem humorously naive. I place them in a contemporary frame, joining them to elements of pop- and street-art.
