German artist Gregor Gaida's latest work entitled Attaboys, continues his pre-occupation with violence and aggressive behaviour between us humans and our environment. Attaboys features two hooded boys fashioned out of aluminium digging up a line in the floor of an art gallery.
“The found footage is often no more than an impulse that is no longer discernible in the further development of the shape. Analogous to photography, my objects are three-dimensional snapshots. The characters are frozen in movement and often cropped along imaginary image borders. I transport the fragmented character of photos into the third dimension. Simultaneously, when dealing with color and options of shaping, painterly characteristics appear. Thus, the life-sized special interventions are formally attributed to sculpture but are equally part of painterly and photographic。
