Two Black Boxes

When I was born it wasn’t enough for me
Later.....I couldn’t believe what I have seen

I made two wooden black boxes. They became small toy theatres; something for me to play and experiment with. I used masking tape to produce figures, velvet curtain and inside the boxes found images from newspaper and magazines.  These two boxes give the feeling that now the show is beginning to start. First box holds a sense of the cinematic with a white background; a man, a coat like prop hanging and no hidden scenery. Second box the body is coming out from half of the curtain leaving the viewer not seeing the whole scene, a kind of ambiguity. When I was making the boxes I drew figures in movement. I also made a metal figure and when I was showing them I choose compositionally to install them in a pseudo religious manner.
