Coming from her initial experience in applied art, the artist abandons the utilitarian tasks and contemplates the everyday objects as evidence of human behavior. As a result, we have before us outwardly recognizable things related to the consumption of food, but totally useless for drinking or eating with their help. They reflected human motivation, claims, expectations, reasonable or vain. Although the meaning of this installation is not limited to caricature demotivation (this dish does not provoke appetite), the theme of

diet is used here as a metaphor for human behavior in the realm of material things related to consumption. Texts of fashionable diets, claiming to be panaceas, become a commentary on the demonstrative non-functionality of the displayed objects.


The dishes come forth as their self-portraits, both caricatured and idealized; they aspire to be a monument to themselves. A teapot without a spout, a cup filled up with its own glaze, bowls with handles inside. Items of a traditional form for pottery, demonstratively refusing perform any tasks inherent to them.


The self-denial of an object does not abolish its physical presence. Unattached to his innate function, it finds no other choice but to become a “thing in itself,” which, according to Kant, exists in spite of our inability to find it and identify as such.
