Klemen Ilovar is interested in how we read very clear depictions such as the product images from catalogues, and in the fact that these become abstract when their original context is changed. This newly acquired abstraction works as a generator for new meanings – when a cable box becomes a space ship, and the backside of a card turns into a curtain.
Quick and easy is a combination of images merged from five different series that form an enclosed system; Klemen Ilovar matches the images in order to create a dialogue. The work lies in the connections that the images shape between each other, much like the illusion of black dots in the Hermann grid.
Background is a formal link to all of the works. It is most evident in the frame, the sides of which are coloured and therefore become an integral part of the image. In the series of the cable trunking system, the printed part is the background colour, while the white photographed object gets its colour from the paper. The background creates the image.
Quick and easy consists of 19 photographic images, mostly photographs, some sketches, no 3d renderings, and no airbrushes. During This Art Fair 2016, part of the series will be shown at Josilda da Conceição Gallery.
