The sculptural installation named What a Life offers a confusing experience. Its elements are so interconnected that it is impossible to look for any hierarchy or explanation. We find ourselves on a strange archaeological site. It is a dystopian image of our civilization, in which everything is mixed, the past with future and present, low with high, natural with artificial. Only the moulds of the clay vessels remain whole. A documentary record of a wasteland with excavated artifacts has a form of a computer game that replicates the scenery around - or is it the other way around? The general feeling of getting lost in time and transience is complemented by references to weapons, as if obsession with them was a constant of our world. -rv-
