2018 Anticipation, Installation in urban environment

The installation Anticipation is situated in a landmark central zone of the city, which brings to mind the times when the citizens have discussed urban issues at the square. It contains information about intention, which is presented in the form of warning symbolism - Caution! Forthcoming contemporary art installation!, thus apprehension about the unpredictable effects of the critical culture is ridiculed. The author follows the principle of contemporary discourse that focusing on the absence of something from its logical place sends a sufficient message to society, and the main questions that the installation puts are related to the ways in which the role of contemporary art is understood as a mediator of social issues. The composition Anticipation has the character of a contemporary advertisement of contemporary art that allows in its space companies and civilizations that are ready to cooperate with contemporary artists.
