Art: Reflections by Oskar Zieta
Oskar Zieta for Sotheby’s Vienna
The Polish-Swiss team of Oskar Zieta design process starts with his show “Reflections“ at the offices of Sotheby‘s first attempt to make appear transparent sheet. The objects Zietas, his inflated metal furniture, as part of the show wrapped in boxes, which are lined with patterns. Through small peepholes to the viewer a glimpse of a picture-neck is released in the polished metal surface caused a distortion of space and the pattern can be. This dissolution of boundaries, the merging of pattern, texture and reflection is also on the type of metal, whether or Stainless Steel as brass, warmer or colder in their appearance. A visually confusing game!
Which for us was the successful aspect of the installation; forcing you to attempt to decipher the object from the confused snippet presented. But ultimately creating your own form. Curator Maria Cristina Didero speaks in her notes about how Oskar Zieta wants to make steel invisible. Oskar Zieta want you to see the object not how there really are, but want that you see them how you viewers, imagine they look.
