(The Know-Hhow Cycles - nails, canvas, balls)

The work represents an overlap between authorial cycles called Unframed and Know-How. The former explores material capacities of painting materials and three-dimensional possibilities of painting, whereas the cycle Know- How works with iconographic elements of popular culture, or, conversely, with the concepts of traditional philosophy. For the above-mentioned overlaps the relation between historizing thinking and language of contemporary art is especially important when, on one side, there is an apparatus of interpretation of human history and, on the other, there is an artwork with abstracted thinking. Formally, the cycles connected the medium of painting and installation. The resulting works are site-specific installations made of painting canvas that is fixed on the wall by steel nails and mostly supplemented by the use of concrete architectonic or interior elements.
