And Further text from:
REPLIKA is a three dimensional magazine bringing together artists from all spheres to explore a unified concept. With each issue, artists, writers, musicians and creators of all descriptions are invited to explore a given theme, and to respond with an object-based, serialised work.
Our second issue is focused on the concept of ELLIPSE. It is the result that occurs when a cone is cut by an oblique plane which does not intersect the base; it is a life cycle or imperfect loop; circularity, rotundity, cycle, ring, areola, eye, loop, wheel, orb, cincture, noose. We turned once more to our friend Roget - of outdated thesaurus fame - in defining what can or could be an ELLIPSE.
As in a game of telephone, or a broken radio transistor, ELLIPSE is about passing information through a fragmented loop. Human relationships, in particular familial and marital, are explored through folding and rusting forms, the longing for connection with nature and urban spaces and the search for an art practice equivalent to a close friend’s embrace. The notion of a cyclical history of a precious material becoming commonplace. The female form retraced until almost all trace is lost. Mechanical attempts to counterfeit imagination.
Each issue consists of ten boxes in lieu of a book, each containing ten works by ten different artists. As each piece is replicated manually,
each of the 10 boxes vary slightly and are a unique collectable. The box is accompanied by a book, in which each work is photographed and itemised along with an accompanying text from the artist, alongside other text-based submissions and contributions from the curators.
