Artist Statement


피파 엘 카디는 인간을 둘러싼 실내환경을 일종의 신체로 해석한다. 작품이 띄는 평면성은 근대적으로 분절화된 3차원의 공간을 납작하게 눌러버리고 작품속 대상이 유기체인지 수전인지 알아볼수 없으며, 화분은 손과 같은 제스츄어를 취하고 반대로 인간을 지시하는듯한 형태적 흔적은 그것이 남성인지 여성인지 구분할수 없다. 작가 노트에 의하면, 그들은 파이프를 정맥과도 같고 폐와 같은 창문을 통해 호흡한다고 증언한다. 이렇게 공간을 유기체 또는 유기체의 연장선으로 묘사하는 것은 기계와 인간이 혼종된 사이보그를 떠올려볼수있다. 앞서말한 도나 해러웨이는 사이버네틱스와 오가니즘이 결합된 사이보그에 관해 대중이 매체에서 주로 접하는 일반적인 사이보그 전사 같은 개념을 넘어 인체와 기계가 직접적인 접촉없이도 외적인 결합 역시 사이보그의 형태라고 주장했다. 도나 해러웨이는 이러한 방식으로 인간의 정의를 모호하게 만들어 유틸리티와 위계의 동일선상에 위치시킨다. 작품에서 이러한 맥락은 회화적 발현을 통해 관찰되기도한다. 피파의 정체없이 서로 낲작하게 눌러붙은 화면은 물질과 비물질, 유기체와 기계, 인간과 동물의 이분법적 경계를 붕괴시키고 재구축한다.

Pipa El-Cardi interprets the internal environment surrounding humans as a type of body. The flatness of the work presses the modern segmented three-dimensional space and makes it impossible to recognize whether the object in the work is an organism or a faucet. The flower pot makes a hand-like gesture, and conversely, the morphology seems to indicate a human being can't tell if it's a man or a woman. According to the artist's note, she testified that pipes are like veins and breathe through windows like lungs. Describing space as an organ or an extension of organism, can be thought of as a cyborg, a hybrid of a machine and a human. Regarding the cyborg, which is a combination of cybernetics and organism, Donna Haraway, argues beyond the general concept of a cyborg warrior that the public usually encounters in the media, the external combination of the human body and machine without direct contact also a form of cyborg. She places utility and human on the same line way to make the definition of human ambiguous. In Pipa’s work, this context is also observed through pictorial expression. The screen, which is neatly pressed together without identity, collapses and reconstructs the dichotomous boundaries between material and immaterial, organic and machine, human and animal.
