According to the constructivist learning theory, the individual is taught through fragments of information and thought that create their own body of knowledge.
“A constructivist does not question the reality of existence, but is more interested in its perception. In addition, the constructivist reality is perceived differently by everyone.”
In the exhibition ‘Konstrukt’ we have created a series of work where cultural fragments are fused to create narratives that challenge our collective assumptions and aspirations which offers alternative realities and uninhibited probabilities. This will later come to question the idea of how representation dwells in reality. Everything that exists is based on something else. Meaning can never be mastered. No critical statement can be seen as final. No word or image stands on its own.
Some forms in these works are recognisable, clearly began with a photograph or such, that became distorted under many transformations. We manipulate reality and information using a range of different materials and techniques to discover the different emotional effects of colour and form to subtly weaving complex artistic references through our work.
Nina Falk and Adam Robertson currently based in Edinburgh where they run an art gallery and contemporary textile company. They previously shown their work at places such as Premier Vision Paris, Moderna Museet Stockholm, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the International Film fesival in Cuba and the Los Angeles Art Council.
