Taking Shape. Sudden Disentanglement, 2020

By Mari Volens
1000 x 1000 cm

Photo installation, varius objects

In this work, pieces of furniture that have lost their functional purpose meet a dancing body amidst nature. Away from these inanimate structures, the body is alive; it has forgotten its usual shape and is boldly trying out new ones. How does one get rid of a familiar and habitual form? How to move closer to naturalness? Do we even know what it means in today’s world? Are we moving closer to our real self when we let go of our conventional form?
