Beauty Failed to Save the World, 2015, обект – използван силиконов имплант в светеща кутия, 26.4 × 26.4 × 10 cm
“Beauty failed to save the world” is a work with a poetic title. It is referring to the failure of the ideal, which was the embodiment of unity between truth, good, and beauty. The artist is reformulating the famous Dostoevski words from the novel “Idiot”. She is looking at the notion of beauty from the viewpoint of todayʼs industry. The artificial, cold light coming through the silicone is creating the sensation of detached immaterial beauty. The level of perfection is itself a commentary on the violence of the perfect lack of deficiencies.
