Wire Piece 2
galvanised wire

Sveta Antonova

‘Wire piece 2’, is an installation of two wire words saying ‘watch me’. It questions the meaning of attention and importance of reading – in the same place the work itself brings attention to its surrounding through its meaning, where a ‘watch me’ is placed the surrounding of it becomes the supposed thing to watch.

Artist Statment

My practice merges social and linguistic paradoxes together with the impossibility of aesthetic neutrality. Nothing starts from a neutral base – every space has its history. I start building ideas, then fit the material to it; means the work constantly changes its appearance, with the core remaining the same. I am aiming for the ultimate realisation of the idea, so the actual material itself has to be adaptable to the context.

The opposite of my work is playfulness and emotion. Everything I produce seems to dissociate itself from the viewer at first and becomes more personal the more one interacts with the words within the installations, sculptures and performances. A subtle provocation in the ephemeral states of my work is always present. For this exhibitions, I propose a work called ‘wire piece 2’ – an installation of two wire words saying ‘watch me’. It questions the meaning of attention and importance of reading – in the same place the work itself brings attention to its surrounding through its meaning, where a ‘watch me’ is placed the surrounding of it becomes the supposed thing to watch.
