RETHINKING ENZO MARI
The video Fables is telling the stories about how and why animals have turned into household objects. The short stories balance between the artifact and the iconography of the animal.
This work was not planned and the concept appeared to me when I have found the objects in a charity store. They stood out for their very subtlety; their kitsch, commonplace appearance and lack of flamboyancy. The animal designs were interesting in that they seemed to have no relevance to the functioning of the objects.
This inspired me to consider the concepts of function and purpose and how they interrelate.
