The interlacing of the statics of a sculpture with the
dynamics of a projection is used by the sculptors in their participation
in the week devoted to modern arts in Plovdiv ‘From a Distance’. They situate
their nets in a popular walking, tunnel which functions as a shopping centre
as well. The transparent barriers seem to separate the outside behaviour
of the passers-by from their inside conscience. The rhythmically changing
images from the projection achieve the opposite – they combine the two in
eternally flowing time. Thus a certain space which represents a concentrated
mirror reflection of reality becomes crammed with yet more energy forces.
The motive of modelling the environment strongly attracts the artists. They
fence off an area, belonging to nobody, which can turn into a place for meditation,
concentration and instant’s privacy.
