IMAGERY PRECEDING THE FIGHT

Our interested in a theme of human competition in western society formed finally the main idea of this show.

The theme of competition is observed and reflected from different angles. Its principles are displayed using visuality of sport competition. We use the metaphores of fight, winn, loose and celebration of winner equal as for different kinds of fight in entire society the same as in the world of art. Each of our installations illustrates part of this phenomenon. Idea of escape from polarity of social fight (as possibility of changing the conditions, points of view and the terms of competition into transcendence as something like thirdpart element) is tested in different situation of each installation, in which its quality, possible reality and specific character is generated and takes visual part of show, mirroring the web of their inner relationships.The esthetics of the show loosely appropriates esthetics of tv shows, horror castlesor disco dancefloor.

We actually built on our preceding show Conquest of Paradise (2010).

The Imagery Preceding the FIight show was on during the Olympic games in London.
