Rada Boukova pressures the associations materials, forms and symbols apriory carry. She stretches the limits of ready-made, reduction of means, material fragility and simplicity of a gesture to its extend. In a frayed but in the same time purist way she requestions the the act of adding something - the necessity of an effort and invested time related to the final result.
She pressures the worn out shapes to their extend in dealing them even more exquisitely and exuberantly N to use them against themselves N , replace them with themselves N, so to exaggerate their associations to the extreme, when they finally disappear being extracted [death].
However in Rada Boukova’s work everything has its own place (and nothing is here) by chance. Rada Boukova here proposes a serious construction (of humour and irony).
