“The Islands” – one of the titles of works, whose shape is arbitrary, while the bio-, zoo-, geomorphic. It is miniature and grows out of the material characters, the nature of the elements and logic of the fingers. Fabric, which comes from different sources, differs by time, histories and qualities, forms the tectonic basis. It includes specks of metal, wood, stones, dry fruits and vegetables, found objects, objects of daily use, and other small particles of the world. “The Islands” is essentially hand-squeezed space with lots of small details. Initially soft, sealed with a solid needle and existing without it, which became very hard itself. Tectonically materialized time, traces of experiences, part of life. Another name of this work – “externals” or external organs, which connects people with their environment.
