    Ruins of Modernism | 2013

Through theese works I try to form visual thougts about the thesis “modernity is our antiquty”. In this aspect I refer to the 20th century’s Bauhaus based unified scales, uniformed lifespaces, and hegemony of architectural methods, and thinking scheme about the connection between the human and the space. The big ideas became utopies, and the material products of it, like buildings, citymodels, industrial systems etc. turned into the ruins of the era. The lost perfection, the abandoned precepts let the empty constructions shaped by natural abstraction. It resulted decomposed structures, deformed squares, and made the strait lines change into an organic, irregular caracter. This ideological, and material morphosis make me to collect, and depict these locations, with the similar inspiration as the artists did it in the former centuries after looking at the torsos and the ruins of the greek and roman temples.
