"I have no choice but to reopen the garage door. For me, the garage is a history of relationships, it's a symbol I remember, it's a combination of tools that, with their chaotic layout, offer the opportunity to accidentally discover something I didn't count on. A combination of context and relationships. Let's fix the relationships, the defects, our garage is open. There is a constant process of changing tools, materials, the body of space. Entrance, steel lock, unlocking. I will place the door with a stone. Re-reflection of the new. "
Dust, proof of time and shape through the garage metaphor presents potential ways to answer the question - What shapes or deforms us? The garage, the author perceives as a metaphor of regularly changing space, content and time with the potential to follow its starting points, examines its visuals, structures, content or small details, which for him represent fragments of identities, traditions, rituals, dogmas and languages. The emphasis is on changing time itself in an ever-changing space. Dust is an instrument of chaos due to the incomprehensibility of past tracks. He is insignificant, ubiquitous, almost imperceptible and yet eloquent. We usually associate it with oblivion or decay. At the same time, however, it creates continuous moments of existence and disintegration, while it is a means and at the same time a space of invisible transformations. The site-specific sound installation by Stanislav Krajči is not only a sign of remembering and forgetting, but a visualization of the subtle relationships between the acquisition of form through fragile impulses and the permanent formation of tradition.
