Art Mediators’ Comments: Marek Deka, Nothing More

Nothing more

Nothing more – that’s what the work is all about. It’s been perfectly planned and made. It looks exquisitely at the WRO Biennale exhibition in the University Library and has its peculiar, individual character. Functioning at times, it needs electricity to run. It is given expression through color, texture corrosion, or right proportion of the components.

The work depicts a family house of the author. Each element stands for the room in the apartment. Moving up and down, it can be a metaphor for how our lives look like at our places. Yet, to read this work, we do not need to know this. The object flashes with some kind of timeless, original rhythm, based on the division of surfaces, sounds of the metal blocks moving. It affects the senses of the viewer, a bit like a rattle on a baby. A sensual object, a little bit post-apocalyptic.
