The kinetic artworks created for this exhibition at Rebonkers in Varna respond to the characteristics and spatial boundaries of this former ottoman arms depot—an elongated cylindrical underground monument.
This work is part of the exhibition “Time Capsule".
Large granite rocks(nature-made) are counterbalanced with rotating brass rods(man-made) representing a precarious interconnectivity between two terrestrial tales. As an architectural composition, this assemblage imagines a geometric, mathematic, and gravitational harmony, generating a feeling of tension and a delicate sense of balance. Most strikingly, this work intends to highlight the ability of science and technology to confound expectations.
