Get Fit in the Park
text by Helēna Demakova
In this work, the artist tackles the relationship between the sculpture and the pedestal.
On a pedestal, we find an object, which resembles a garden urn, while the negative form of the urn has been created within the pedestal. The sculpture concurrently highlights the wholeness of material and form, i.e., a uniform whole, which can have many variations.
Thus, the artist refers to both classical principles of creating form in sculpture, as well as to domestic processes in cooking.
She explains that, “In essence, the negative form of the sculpture on the inside of the pedestal makes this work cyclical. The work becomes renewable, as it can be filled and emptied again and again, just like one’s appetite, which arises through eating.
In thinking about appetite as a cyclical process, there is an evident parallel in that the garden urn has been created by combining cake, pie and other silicon forms used in cooking.
The conceptual track of the work incorporates not only the aforementioned forms, functions and procedural relationships, but also a universal quality like “being uniform in one’s diversity”, which is visible in the work through the possibility it offers to literally create any object using another one; in this case, a garden urn.”
