FUTURE PERFECT gallery
Piotr Jaros, The HouseJaros' Filme, Zeichnungen, Fotografien und Prototypen der letzten Jahre, sowohl solche, die sich auf die rätselhafte Sphäre von Haus und Herd beziehen, als auch seine ironisch futuristischen Fantasien über die Arbeit, nehmen eine Form von offen strukturierten, existentiellen Anekdoten an.
And even if his anecdotes do not illustrate any particular point, they are not deprived of truth. Their perverse philosophy is based on the fact that they do not pretend to be what they are not, remaining mere fragments of the recorded reality, with no intentions of explaining or exemplifying anything. In spite of that, they provide us with a glimpse of a future which cannot yet be imagined, a future, where objects will finally loose their raison d’être in favour of concepts, ideas or mental projects. Production of tangible objects has lost its importance. They are superfluous baggage from the past we will get rid of sooner or later. What matters today is a design of a new world. A mental change which will sweep the whole visible and tangible world onto a historical and technological waste heap – possibly including all that used to be of value and essence to ourselves. That is why the foundation of Piotr Jaros’s works consists of a common-sense dose of cynicism and calculation. The whole visible world requires redesigning, which for now is tantamount with confronting our desires.
