To My Dad And Tatlin

2012.


In the context of Nietzsche and cyclicality of the world with the help of imagination of de Chirico’s ''recipe'' I am trying to understand the relation between reality and illusion. I am transferring a part of the ‘’burden’’ of my imagination on the miniatures of construction machinery, and by doing that, I am anthropomorphizing and turning them in to the authors of the project within my project. I am laying the foundations with the symbols of my consciousness and subconscious, symbols that do not have a real link.
