    Mere space of green color | 2016

This object was created at a symposium in Mikulov, in which I took part. It was my response to an intergenerational debate about what is sculpture and what is painting. It seemed important to comment on this absurd discussion, and I wanted to create a piece of art capturing the essence of both genres. This hanging object is a classical painting responding by its form to the play of light and shadow like a sculpture, while not being one or the other: it is a soft object levitating optically. It is an object about the dialogue between painting and sculpture. I installed it in a cloister connecting the studios of the symposium, which has the potential of being a point of both meeting or conflict.
