Hexapod

2007 steel, cups, handles, bicycle chains
150 x 100 x 120 cm

First nontrivial machine of the series, Hexapod came from a desire to invest the ceiling and flee the Real. What’s more natural than a vehicle to explore this unusual plan, based on the movement of cockroaches and other insects with six legs. The vehicule is functional but also fictional, belonging to another reality. The viewer plays with his imagination, projecting himself in command of the Hexapod, mentally turning the exhibition space and offering a different perspective of the surrounding works. 1 + 1 = 3
