Utterly Useless Personal Pleasure

 

Installation, metal, found wood, gallery windows, 2014

 

The exhibition space is occupied by a construction scaffolding. The scaffolding, facing the gallery's wall scale window was used by the visitors to sit and ‘take a break’ while overlooking the hectic parade of everyday life that takes place outside of the windows, on the city of Rijeka main promenade.

 

 

By using the object, the visitor himself becomes a performer of the installation. The entire space, from the inside and outside point of view, is activated through points of movement, stillness and observation.

Viewed through the relationship of the double coding, the boundaries between looking and being looked at, doing useful and useless work, between production and consumption (of art), become porous.
