WHAT WOULDN’T YOU DO? DIABOLO GENESIS is an installation and a textual work combined. While the installation is a provocative illustrative statement on contemporary art consumption practices the textual work expands the prospect towards a reflection of socio-cultural values culminating in socio-political deficiencies.
The artist elaborately crafted 33 (13 for the smaller version) fantasised figurines of approximately 8 - 20 cm height in solid glass that are arranged in an altar-like presentation. Besides the second main component of the work is a fictional weapon (a air rifle at the smaller version) which changes the whole arragement into a shooting range setting enforcing the notion of actually shooting at the tiny sculptures.
The corresponding letters addressed to a dear friend express intimate insights into the artists encompassing conceptual worldview. Though doubting, almost desperate they still reflect a hopeful optimistic enthusiasm for artistic expression and dicisively maintain an undenieable relevance for our culture.
