Ringišpil: Collaging realities
And I, what have I to do with this story, La Ronde? Am I the author? The
compère? A passer-by? I am you, anyone of you, the incarnation of your desire...
your desire to know everything. People never grasp reality in its entirety. Why?
Because they see only one aspect of things, I see them all because I see in the
round. This enables me to be everywhere at once. Everywhere. But where are we
now? On the stage? In the studio? Who can tell? In the street...
Max Ophüls, La Ronde opening seen, 1950
Ringišpil: Collaging realities depicts the middle place between leaving and
arriving, long lost memories (real or imagined), and recently acquired ones.
Replica socialist architecture buildings from Zagreb, former Yugoslavia, project
reinvented childhood memories from a disappeared country. The buildings act as
a link between my personal past and present and represent a portal to a possible
different reality.
This installation is thought of as homage to a new era, celebrating possibilities and
the constant search for new discoveries within our technological world. The work
can be better viewed with one eye closed, inciting to set on a journey through the
eye of a camera, thus questioning what is real.
