Tablets/ Tăblițe

[ EN]  IN-TRIGÂ BOOKCASE. Tablets are created and organised according to several themes that correspond to the words of my personal dictionary: PAPER, LINE, DEATH, STONE, SKIN, REALITY, SENSATION, DUST.

TABLETS are hieroglyphs of my studio life / mental structures that oscillate between book and paintings / tool-containers. A tablet can be viewed, read, touched, smelled, and involving the viewer’s body. The tablets have two sides: image (sketch / photo) and quote (writing / photo). Several tablets are organized into bookcase bodies and correspond to the structure of the Big Trigâ Dictionary. A tablet involves: stirr-ing, sift-ing, stor-ing, preserv-ing, prim-ing, lock-ing, stack-ing, sand-ing, transferr-ing, cutt-ing, wett-ing, dry-ing , us-ing. On the one hand, I selected and cut my old artistic sketches, which I transferred to the tablet support, and on the other I proceeded by a similar selection and adjustment, respectively, of the quotations extracted from past and present.

Below are some of the over eighty tablets that make up the installation

[RO]  BIBLIOTECA IN-TRIG . Tăblițele sunt create și organizate în funcție de mai multe tematici ce corespund cuvintelor dicționarului personal: HÂRTIE, LINIE, MOARTE, PIATRĂ, PIELE, REALITATE, SENZAȚIE, ȚĂRÂNĂ.

           TĂBLIȚELE sunt hieroglife ale vieții de atelier / structuri mentale care oscilează între carte și pictură / unealtă-container. O tăbliță poate fi privită, citită, pipăită, mirosită și implică corpul privitorului. Tăblițele au două fețe: imagine (schiță / foto) și citat (scris / foto). Mai multe tăblițe sunt organizate în corpuri de bibliotecă și corespund structurii Marelui Dicționar al Trigii. Tăblița implică: amesteca-re, cerne-re, chitui-re, conserva-re, grundui-re, lăcui-re, stivui-re, șmirghelui-re, transfera-re, tăie-re, uda-re, usca-re, uza-re. Pe de o parte am selecționat și tăiat vechile mele schițe plastice, pe care le-am transferat pe suportul tăbliței, iar pe de alta am procedat printr-o selecție și ajustare asemănătoare, respectiv a citatelor extrase cu din lecturile trecute și prezente.

Mai jos sunt o parte din cele peste optzeci de tăblițe din biblioteca In-Trigâ
