Dorothee Brey, Zoe Roosen :: [Breaking Now]
The installation reflects artist's idea of the animation of the machine as a mirror of pollution. The success of Breaking Now lies in this very process, the current tension and diverging statements in art challenges us to re-evaluate our personal criteria in the composing of visual concepts. At the same time the work represents the ultimate symbol of the cycle of life; what we find is the permanence in the personal approach in expressive settings, that contrast between areas in and out of focus, exaggerates the sharpness in the central area. The use of texts or single words to engage the viewer; the artworks supply us with the ever topical, ever desirable presence of a poetic spirit, away from the turmoil of trends and generations, the layers of time and place involved in the works of art presented engage the viewer in the complexity and awareness of the situation. Our idea of culture is severely restricted because we've always applied it to art; the success of Breaking Now lies in this very process, at the same time the work represents the ultimate symbol of the cycle of life; we see the image, which is the 'work' produced by the percipient as an event in his or her time. But there is still something inhuman about this work.
