REPETITION AND DIVERSITY

REPETITION AND DIVERSITY
Date: 
28.08.2023 to 08.09.2023

The project with a binary exposition form reflects on two thoughts: a backlash as a non-sensual repetition — “Repetition” and a backlash as a tiny space to store one’s statement — “Diversity”. The first part of this project took its place in a former industrial institution and articulated the idea of producing the same actions, patterns of one movement in a very same way so the system that created the need of this repetitions is now not manufacturing the useful work as a result. While the first part is freely criticising present state of the world, the second one that was organised in Agency. Art Ru may be read as a positive explanation and even justification of problems that we as a society face nowadays. The main though of the part “Diversity” is to claim that the backlash, the gap which may be perceived as a safe room to form the statement is not actually that friendly and in fact is existing only because of the presence of invasive patterns and destructive processes.
