FROM HERE TO DYSTOPIA
Installation Shot @Galerie koal
Standing at the center of the exhibition FROM HERE TO DYSTOPIA is a life-sized figure which would be reminiscent of a classical statue but for the sleeping bag which envelops it, concealing it from the world. The figure is surrounded by 25 metal sculptures which are distributed throughout the exhibition space, and whose spikes clearly delimit them from the figurative entity, and seem to form a kind of second protective barrier around it. With their aggressive, tetrahedronal structures, oriented toward the outside, they generate a kind of impenetrable shield, and seem reminiscent of root forms. Yet instead of grounding themselves, they close themselves off from the surrounding environment.
