Searching for the right measure

 

According to the scientific researches 72% of human body is water.

My body weight is 56 kg. Capacity of the water that my body contains is 40.32 ℓ.

In this work I am offering the amount of water that I have in my body,

I am exhibiting it in tube which can contain this exact amount of water. r²π ∙L = V

0.95² ∙ 3.14 ∙ L =40.32 ℓ;

0.9025∙ 3.14 ∙ L =40.32 ℓ

L= 40320cm³: 2.83385cm²

L=142.28m

Tube’s diameter is 1.9cm and its length is 142.28m.

1 glass = 2 dℓ = 1/5 ℓ = 1000 cm³: 5 = 200 cm³

40.32 ℓ= 40320 cm³ 40320 cm³: 200 cm³ = 201.6 glasses

The same capacity is exhibited in 201.6 glasses of 2dl.

The audience can drink water from those glasses and I am keeping that capacity of 40.32ℓ by pouring new glasses of water. In this work water is the beginning of communication and beginning of searching for the right measure. Is it 56kg, 142.28m, 201.6 glasses, few right words or another measure? I am equalizing myself with this capacity; I am giving as much as I can.

I am referring to endless inspiration creativity and life that always exists. 40.32 ℓ is endless.

The man is a measure to all things and everything is created by man’s measure.

I was distributing flyers to the audience with explanation of the measures.

These measures are variable and can be changed if my body weight is changing.

Dedicated to my gradnmother

„Dedicated to my grandmother” is an intervention that is consisted of cleaning the monument. This monument was dedicated to women that were fighting for dignity, rights and freedom of mankind, to women that were being forgotten. I wanted to remind the audience on activities of these women and to point out their positions and roles. I was doing this intervention for two and half hours. This intervention was performed during Exhibition- events „Progressive hopes “in the street Cara Lazara on the 10th July 2006. This monument is placed opposite of the Gallery „Chaos“.

The translation of the text on the monument is: “Youth section of Women movement worked in this building during the period from1936 to 1940. Women gathered in this section learned and fought for better life, dignity and freedom of the mankind. As fighters they become excellent and unique examples that are necessary for every time and for all generations.”
