Installation with two light sources, a hair dryer and everyday waste
material: pizza boxes, plastic bottles etc.
Installation Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over the Mountains contains a
pile of trash: cardboard boxes, news papers, plastic waste and beer cans
placed on top of each other. With a help of two electric lights the
structure made of rubbish casts a shadows and projections on a wall. On a
wall surface a viewer can see a romantic landscape with mountains and an old
tree with branches moving with the wind.
The installation is dealing with conceptual ideas and visible poetry. Using
rough elements and sarcastic humor it creates a dualistic view: traces of
everyday struggle, remains of consuming facing dream world: aesthetics which
shamelessly offer us a touch of infinity.
