About the artwork

“The architectonics of the sculptural composition embodies the inseparability of time and space. Their shape refers to Stonehenge or the ‘stone circle’. The circle as an image through which time is understood symbolizes its cyclicity.

The sculpture makes the temporal characteristic visible, ‘materializes’ it. It allows to literally compare the past and the future. The time circle becomes a form of space and ‘seals’ the viewer within itself.

Along with this, the texture and materials of mirrored stelae hint at ‘parallel realities’ and the possibility of going beyond the hermetic space, suggest ways of psychological ‘escape’ through the realization of the moment’s uniqueness.

How does it work? Non-stop cameras record the video and stream live, and after a certain period of time, they also begin to playback the recorded material. That means if you will come to the opening on December 17th, 2020, and see your reflection on the sculptures, then, coming on December 17th, 2021, at the same time, you will see two reflections of yourself.”
