Coal as a manufacturing material

The unique approach of Eduard Locota towards art, embrace the permeability between art and function. An unique mirror that is as much sculpture as it is design. By using coal as a manufacturing material, Eduard Locota is predicting a feasible future for coal, but not as one of the world’s leading combustibles. If we analyzing the past of the material: its transformation from a plant into a rock, and currently into the fuel; we can try to predict the new and complex future of coal and similar fossil-fuel. The artist is reinterpreting the purpose of fossil fuel, we actually go beyond recycling, towards an active transformation of the material. FOREST MIRROR: RATHER THAN LOOK AT AN IMAGE OF THE ARTIST’S MAKING, VIEWERS ARE NOW CONFRONTED BY THEMSELVES, THEREBY QUESTIONING A LONG-HELD NOTION OF TRANSCENDING REALITY. EACH PIECE IS BUILT AND SIGNED BY THE ARTIST, ACCOMPANIED WITH A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY.
