Robert Soroko

Robert's sculptures shows three stages of an object:

1. deconstructed

2. constructed

3. in movement


A contemplation of those three stages depicts Robert's approach towards a part of his art practice - exploring stillness in movement and finding movement in stillness.


The sculpture in the deconstructed stage depicts the whole piece by emphasizing its parts

A phase between the first and second stage is a trans mutative moment of the static qualities of these parts which gives them a new form.

A constructed stage of the sculpture shows its static features and its possibilities of interaction with the space.


Once it's performed a movement is created. During this performative act a perception shifts from stillness to movement. It creates an energy of focus which can be felt by a performer and a spectator. In this way a mutual relationship is established between the whole act, people and space. While turning, a performer and a spectator can get aware of silence existing in-between movements of the motoric parts of the sculpture reflecting its stillness in movement.


All of that creates a change in position of an object over time. It switches a focus from movement in stillness to stillness in movement.
