Exhibition Contracts presents a series of new works (photography and installation) that are exploring the multiple positions of an artwork between materiality and abstraction. Image become a form where different parties meet in a paradoxical and complex way.
Contract presume some intent, it starts from a need to enter in relation and recognize the other. It is also a promise that seeks to project relations in the future.
In this exhibition, Contract become a metaphor for constant transformation of materiality into abstraction and contrary in a set of non linear steps.
Igor Eškinja constructs his architectonics of perception as ensembles of modesty and elegance. The artist “performs” the objects and situations, catching them in their intimate and silent transition from two-dimensional to three-dimensional formal appearance. Using simple, inexpensive materials, such as adhesive tape or electric cables and unraveling them with extreme precision and mathematical exactitude within strict spatial parameters, Eškinja defines another quality that goes beyond physical aspects and enters the registers of the imaginative and the imperceptible.
