Descripción del Artista
Ana Navas’ (*1984) practice is a combination of various art forms, including sculpture, video, painting and performance. In doing so, it focuses on user, design and art objects in the broadest sense of the word. As a sort of researcher, she explores the genealogy - the origin and development history - of such objects. She uses both a historical and a fictional approach to raise questions about the relationship between form and function and between “original” and “copy” of objects. In humorous and inventive ways Ana Navas shows that what we are - or better what we are required to be – is constructed and communicated through simple and seemingly inoffensive objects and behaviors. How is it possible that an object, such as an ironing board, is anchored in the collective memory of millions of people around the world? And how does the meaning of universal forms change in different ... contexts? According to Navas, this subject is important for artists and the process of creating art and design works. Where do makers get their inspiration and creativity from? To what extent is it possible to come up with an object or idea entirely on your own? Or are they by definition merged elements of things that you have seen before? And if so, to what extent can you actually claim that something is your idea? In addition, Navas investigates how art is perceived outside the art context and where visual arts and disciplines such as design, ethnography, fashion, decoration and the relationship between “high” and “popular” culture touch each other and make connections with each other. Who decides whether an object is a piece of art, craft industry or trivial decoration?
