Atanas Djonov and Allan Giddy, Shedding (Inside Out), 2011
[colour-bond shed, recycled electrical objects (from garage), solar modules, battery]
An inner sanctum protected by a meniscus of steel serves as both shelter and platform. From this safe haven the two artists explore their feelings concerning time and distance in an attempt to come to terms with cultural loss. The result is then channeled out through the skin of tin and glass.
Emotion and history are inexorably linked in this work, as the shed becomes a vehicle and site for exchange, both personally and collectively.
