Men At Work /Henrik Ekesiöö
Employees are tight to the job, their usefulness for the business is fully exploited. Working time is perfectly divided and planned for the maximum of the profit. Every spare moment is effectively used. If they can be in charge of some of the working time they revitalize their brains and bodies and the work can be concluded with higher effectiveness and better results. In one building material supply store in Stockholm the team of workers is using spare time to exercise their graphic skills in highly democratic manner. They vote on the theme and rotate each one’s responsibility. Each week the subject changes and the results are surprising and overcoming our low expectations.
The Farm /Nongkran Panmongkol
What is the European Union for the people of Europe themselves? What is the real information they gain and from where it comes? From the government or the media? While joining the Union from different perspective of life and from different economical backgrounds it is hard to agree on anything. The rich are here to share with the poor. EU budget. To vote in and out of the Union. Everything seems ironical in a very serious way.
A Pedestal /Jan Stolín
We always expect visual art in concrete space and environmental setting. Ourselves we try to limit art to fit our ideas and interpretation of the world. This way we often kill its ability to open new area of discussion and its main structural element that gives it importance and actuality. But art is essentially subversive and it fights our rigid conceptions and gains its own space in our lived environment. Pedestal is the whole system with its own function – it doesn’t have to support any other concept, material or a thing.
Reality Touch /Lexa Peroutka
We are materialist, we have and do not have certain things. We are related and disconnected through the material part of our life. With the help of material we wage the wars and create relationships. Without material background we are nonexistent. None. Nichts. Ingen. Zero. Exclusive champagne sets things right into the right perspective – but if the conflict appears all is upside down – and our fragile part is hitting the hard ground.
