The exhibition included art objects, sculptures and installations specially created for the exhibition, united by the idea of the potentiality of things that surround us in everyday life. The artist conceptually rethought various kinds of objects through their mechanical reassembly, referring to their components and the logic of use. The author reassembled a chainsaw, a fitness machine, and a car, which acquired new forms in the gallery space precisely as a result of artistic manipulations.
The name of the exhibition is based on the ability of almost any thing to change shape, turn into a new object, without losing the ability to transform back. The name enters into dialogue with the minimalists of the 60s. XX century, who also used the term “antiform”, but rather in the sense of “non-form”, a rejection of it. The artist makes a confident attempt to appropriate this term by rethinking the phenomenon of form being changeable. In addition to the “reassembled” sculptures, the exhibition featured artistic objects with several versions of assembly instructions, referencing the format of children’s construction sets. Such an author’s move reveals the variability of the object’s functionality and offers the viewer the hypothetical possibility of co-authorship. The works were rethought by the author, including in the context of the history of world culture: in the sculptures the author hides references to ancient mythology, the history of religion and art.
