2012 Stairs _ Stepenice

Work Steps was conceived and produced especially for the space of the Belgrade cooperative/former Geozavod building, within the context of the exhibition Point Blank, happening at the Mikser Festival. Intertwining of these spheres, spatial, art and of interest and the tensions that are released in the process of building an exhibition have formed a piece realized permanently on the wall of one of this building’s steps.

The work Steps has been produced as a stencil, a technique of graffiti above all as means of critical street art. The decorativeness of its multitude of coloured spots forming a sphere communicates with the particular decorativeness of the building, yet remaining out of the decoration expressed by the edifice itself. Coloured circles are positioned in a shape that can be traced in different ways, vibrating on the convex wall above a landing between two flights of stairs. The movement up and down the stairs, the steps themselves and the suggestion of the hierarchy inside the building’s architecture, negotiates the spherical shape that has no beginning or end, up or down.

The words CRISIS OF ART / ART OF CRISIS complete the sphere. In the layered context of the inner steps of the magnificent decaying building–art exhibition–festival of cultural industry, this work reaches for the amount of the sobering reality that, within the festival might seem irrelevant, but in real-life central. What is the capacity of art to invert the crisis, perhaps above all of human ethics, into a quality that communicates with a given context by most basic means? How to battle out critical space today and what to produce with it?

Rad Stepenice osmišljen je i realizovan posebno za prostor zgrade bivšeg Geozavoda u konktektu izložbe Brisani prostor, koja se dešava u okviru Mikser festivala. Preplitanje ovih sfera, prostornih, umetničkih i interesnih i tenzija koja pritom nastaju formirali su rad realizovan trajno i direktno na zidu jednog od stepeništa zgrade.

Rad Stepenice urađen je kao šablon, tehnika grafita pre svega kritične ulične umetnosti. Njegova dekorativnost mnoštva obojenih tačaka uobličenih u sferični oblik komunicira sa izrazitom dekorativnošću same zgrade, ipak ostajući van jezika dekoracije koji govori samo zdanje. Obojeni kružići postavljeni su u oblik koji može da se prati na više načina, vibrirajući na zaobljenom zidu iznad podesta između dva niza stepenika. Kretanje gore—dole koje stepenice omogućuju, sami koraci i sugerisanje hijerarhije unutar arhitektonike zgrade, komunicira sa sferičnim oblikom koji nema početak ni kraj, gore ni dole.

Rečima KRIZA UMETNOSTI / UMETNOST KRIZE koje dopunjuju sferu, u slojevitom kontekstu unutrašnjeg stepeništa velelepne zapuštene zgrade—umetničke izložbe—festivala kulturne industrije, ovaj rad poseže za onom dozom otrežnjujuće realnosti koja u okvirima festivala deluje sporedna, a u svakodnevnom životu centralna. Koliki je kapacitet umetnosti da krizu možda pre svega ljudske etike, najosnovnijim mogućim sredstvima, invertira u kvalitet koji komunicira sa datim kontekstom? Kako izvojevati kritički prostor danas i šta proizvesti sa njim?
