Flashbacks: Alexander Sovtysik

Flashbacks: Alexander Sovtysik

The references between Rorschach test and Alexander’s work are not coincidental. The test, which was implemented to detect thought disorders and mental issues, deals with complex human interpretation algorithms. Same can be said about works presented at „Flashbacks” exhibition. The use of old carpets as a material for these works can be interpreted in various ways: the eastern-european aesthetics are connected with the Ukrainian and Polish background of the Artist. Spiritual, luxurious interior element, often being thrown away in modern cities. Complex, symmetrical ornaments which consist of traditional symbols. Often referenced to as a magical object. Iconography of the cut-outs is intuitive, based on interpretation of the material itself, merged with contemporary internet-age influences, as well as demonology, mythology, legends and folk-tales. The question to be asked is about properly integrating the knowledge of our ancestors to better understand ourselves, humanity, and the future.
