Julia Kurek / Poland

«Phanta Raih», video installation, 2013.

Sound: Sebastian Moś.

 

Moving images and music create some microcosm that influences all human senses. Random combination of shapes on the monitors looks like rippled water surface reflecting light, nature and architecture. Constantly changing ruffles deform straight lines, light reflections make unusual and unreal images. This symphony of forms and colors unites with music in perfect harmony. Electronic correction of the image and sound is ever so delicate and does not affect their ingenuity anyhow. Watching this water chaos, splashes of colors and rapidly moving forms, one instantly realizes that these structures flawlessly get together on the screens. The artist somewhat orders the natural chaos and at the same time lets it flow freely in those orderly boundaries. The water pictures that remind us of “eluding happiness” reflect the world beyond the frames, the world that is dispersed, distorted and strangely corresponding with worried, changing inner landscape.

Marta Ryczkowska
