ART IS MADE BY FAILURE
broken glass, silicone glue
10 x 24.5 x 24.5 cm
This piece was made during a summer residency in Kuldiga in collaboration with Carlos Bernal (CO / FRA) and Anna Pabērza (LV).
The idea was to re-build a broken glass block from a local abandoned match factory. Giving ourselves a demanding task, something that was impossible to accomplish, we desired to evidence an absurd. Although it was obvious from the onset that the task is destined to fail, we brought a lot of time and effort into it. Then the process becomes as important as the result. The piece notes a fulfillment of incompleteness.
Re-building of a glass piece could also be viewed as parallel to re-building of history. Different pieces may fit into the same place of the hidden past.
