Props for Home Scenes

The props function a bit like the gas street lamp in the Charlie Chaplin movie “Easy Streets”. The new policemen (Chaplin) gets a fight with big guy on the street and to knock him down squeezes the guy’s head with the gas lamp. The head wrapped with the bent street lamp is extinguished until that point, then, Charlie turn it on. This illustrates a simple method connecting, recasting and reimaging objects for the home, these objects could create a real home or these same objects may become a bit convoluted or spectacular.

Q21 Museums Quartier, Vienna

By manipulating devices of war and political rallies and part of the radar system from the Second World War era, the viewer indulges with direct aesthetic pleasure through ornate material connected together with aluminum pipes and silver tarp. As with previous work, floating installations transform our perception of space and disrupt the purity of the modernist white transparent cube, nodding here towards the spectacular and the baroque.
