3 objects from 2012 where the subconscious led the way. Fun stuff.
1) Black High Heel Fetish(Model)
(Nylon cable tie construction, 24cm x 24cm x 22cm, Dirk Marwig 2012)
2) Not That One! (Shaped/deformed 12 inch Record -object- + my hand, Dirk Marwig 2012)
*Sometimes, when I used to DJ my ex-wife used to be in the booth with me and she would shout: “Not That One!”-in reference to a record I was about to put on. Hence the object and the title. Memory. The photo of my hand was a hand-selfie to demonstrate the procedure!
3)NEVERFLAT ESTRELLA (My old basketball flattened out and mounted on plywood with oil paint, 65cm x 62cm x 6cm, Dirk Marwig 2012)
- "Estrella" in spanish means "star" ... basketball star- in this case! Neverflat means "never flat" -but look at it!
When something looks easy, simple or 'basic' it only seems that way. Behind the simple looking concept lies a very complex structure of thought combined with enormous discipline.
