Exhibition Photo Description:
son:DA fetishized peripheral ordinarily subjects of technological age, such as socket, plugs, cell phones, cables. son:DA creates icons, drawn with computer mouse, that in opposite with paradoxial ilusionismus of Rene Magritt speaks: »This is socket!« Exactly this, which hid for armoire, will now as picture be installed on wall before armchair and admired minimalized aesthetics and functionality perfection of technical building. Without them – the sockets, there is no communication in this alias with this world. On the other hand, it is building in image-story that is showing conditions of residence. (Aleksandra Kostic _ Kibla.MB) The tandem son:DA belongs to that area of art characterised by the linking of various technologies and media, as well as a new approach to group work. son:DA is active in the areas of installations, computer drawing and audiovisual performance. Characteristic motifs of this group are electrical cables and the rest of the electrical menagerie, such as outlets, telephones, a computer; in short, elements that represent connection and the communication methods of modern society. The tandem son:DA creates art with partners who change according to the needs of the project. They are replacing traditional authorship with various forms of participation. Impurity and hybridisation are characteristic both in their individual processes as well as at the level of content. son:DA uses a fresh approach to reinvigorate the irony of modern society as seen, for example, in the films of Jacques Tati. Similar to how the main character in the film ‘Mon Oncle’ becomes tangled in an enormous number of plastic hoses, son:DA would intertwine a figure with cables in their computer-generated drawings. All of this serves as criticism of the absurdity of technologised modern society and its alienation. (Zdenka Badovinac _ MOMA.LJ)
