    Transformations | 2016

A space, reminding of a house, is inhabited with different objects. Each of them is built around a particular story and a relation between text and object becomes the key in reception, as long as on the metaphorical object all sorts of content are designed. Objects abstract certain narrations in which women's attitudes have become a leaven of various phenomena, because the history of bread is also the history of mankind. The installation thus becomes a kind of primer, human history in a nutshell. As shown in a kaleidoscope is a range of different properties of the symbolic bread and the game is played between the elementary constituent of the human diet and its higher needs. Bread objects created from magma mass and transformed in the oven, they are tautological. Bread dough has the right to exist due to organisms that reproduce by budding. The same process occurring in micro scale is shared with historical events from which subsequent fate of the man reveal and a hero himself – the bread - accompanies us up till today, being a link to the eldest moments of history.
