Steady movement (one of forests, three of birds)

Steady movement is a mixture of forest and bird datasets with a tendency for slow reshaping. Containing one symbolically fixed element (tree-forest) and three symbolically movable elements (birds), it shows desire for movement but under fixed parameters.

The result of two opposite forces (movement and steadiness) is an in-between state, a rift into the unknown, but also a possibility for transformation into something new.

“The exhibition Drei Tage bis zum Ende der Kunst is the result of a seven-month journey within the WHW Akademija module Conversation about the Trees (conceived and led by Ana Dević). Focusing on issues such as resistance, resilience, and collectivity, the module used the motif of trees and forests as a metaphor through which main lines of inquiry branched out into different topics and artistic practices, as found in the Kontakt Collection.”
