1+1+1” is the project about all of us, about the people and for the people, about each of us with his unique, personal opinion, will, feelings. It is close and clear for the audience, but certainly everyone will invest in the reading of the project something personal, something that will shut down and fill it with additional meanings.
Self-identification, awareness of self-essence is impossible without the relations with other people. And although the “other” word provides contrast, dissimilarity, it is not totally alien image for a person who designs it. Each of us is original and unique but one is similar to another. Another constantly accompanies us, he is part of our inner and outer world. Every day we see dozens of people, we notice our similarities and differences, we seek common and special.
So, every detail at work, which was created by Bogdan Tomashevskyi, is the one and only, but at the same time, it is a part of the whole. If you look at the subject from a distance, you can not distinguish one silhouette from others – all they merge into a solid pattern, an abstract relief, which was formed through the thousands of components.
“1+1+1” is the project about all of us, about the people and for the people, about each of us with his unique, personal opinion, will, feelings. It is close and clear for the audience, but certainly everyone will invest in the reading of the project something personal, something that will shut down and fill it with additional meanings.
The total size of the object is 300x500cm. Consists of 15 wooden panels, 1 panel size is 100x100cm.
There are approximately 7-8 thousand of figures of people, they are 4-7 cm high, made from white and red clay. Each figure was created individually, manually by hands. Formation and copying were not used. Sculptural figures are attached to wooden panel with silicone sealant.
15 panels are mounted on a specially created wooden frame according to the size of the installation.
While mounting of art installation two people are required.
The recommended ceiling height of the location is more than 3 meters.
The installation was exhibited once in Ukraine in 2014 in the Shcherbenko Art Center in Kiev.
At the moment I am looking for a place for re-exposure outside of Ukraine.
Open to cooperation with Art Funds, Museums, galleries.
Also in the portfolio, there are other exhibition objects made from different materials.
