THE PLANE OF THINKING
Street Art Museum, Saint Petersburg, 2019
Identifying ourselves with different political or social movements that contain the images of the enemy, we build borders. But where is that boundary between “inside” and “outside”, between “yours” and “others”? Every division (political, ideological) is conditional and based only on point of view. The attitude respecting the barricades is determined only by the thought pattern. There’s no need to cross the border to get on the other side.
The work is made of a steel fence folded into the Mobius strip. This figure has only one side, despite the volume.
Thus, the artist shows the conditionality of any boundaries that are possible only on the plane, or rather in a flat thinking. The viewers are able to select their position over the fence with their mind and be inside and outside of the construction at the same time.
