At dawn the project is an installation that combines several ways of artistic expression. In formal terms, I’m working on finding a variety of black, its substance and build the impression of spaciousness within it. I’m interested in the situation in which passive, stationary black takes shape through active form. In the layer of ideological installation is present landscape with a rich buffet, which will consist of meticulously crafted sculptures from coal and plaster casts. Nature from which derive all the threads of interpretation in the work,  and which also determines the structure of the whole work will be processed in order to preserve their characteristics only in a general transmission, without realistic quotes - mold plant will be larger than life and shapes, and the cascades “rocks” will be drain water to the source in the center of the composition. After crossing the threshold of the room with the installation of the viewer will see the inside of a separate, previously invisible space. The quiet invitation to enter through the hole from which it came white light appears in the form of aperture having sexual connotation, consistently continued by plane sculpture installation in the form of a wild landscape. Its three-dimensional building strong light from the top, contrasted with the black of the work itself. This work extend the meaning of whole project in a topics related on human.
