On Wednesday, December 12, the opening of the "Point of View" exhibition will take place in the space of the FACE Foundation. His works will be presented by Kharkiv sculptors Sergey Shawlis and Alexander Miroshnichenko.
The emotional state of man, all his shades and tones between white and black, is the main theme of the research of artists. With the help of new approaches to the art of sculpture and the modern use of ancient pottery techniques, the authors create not only original images, but also try to convey a special turning point, which is called "Point-of-Sale".
The starting point is the state of breakdown, the feeling when it seems that you have completely exhausted yourself. An attempt to abstract from feelings, similar to the state of anabiosis, which may be the last point, or to act as an impetus for action and to be a new reference point. It is not possible to definitely determine which emotion is depicted in the sculpture, since it does not have absolutely clear faces between them.
Alexander Miroshnichenko and Sergey Shawlis in their manner investigate the ratio of the pressure of the outside world and internal stress. New images of sculptures "without a rod" of Shawlis, and a complex symbolism of Miroshnichenko's ceramic works, suggest that it is the combination of absolute euphoria and an extremely colorful palette of diverse feelings that results as a result of that tangle of emotions, thoughts and actions that is called the Man.
The authors are convinced that each of the visitors of the exhibition must "try" the images of sculptures and recall oneself in different life circumstances. Could feel how the mood changes depending on the "color" that will contribute to the work. You are sad or fun, maybe you "lost your head" from love, did you come to the limit and do not know where to go next? Stop and think, because when one door is closed, somewhere others will definitely open. As long as a person thinks, while he feels - "point" will always be a symbol of the transition from one state to another. This is not the end of the story, it's just the end of one of the sections of life.
