Ines DobosicBerlin Germany
In my art practice, I deconstruct the ideological public space via accumulations of lines and marks which represent, in various degrees of abstraction, contemporary urbanism and social life. My work translates obsession with the public in public space and cities, reproduces familiar visual signs, and arranges them into new conceptually layered arrangements across a range of media—from works on paper and canvas to photography. There are two essential parts to my art practice— technical drawing, often made with 3d softwares, as something rational, and mark-making as something irrational, intuitive or emotional. Mark-making becomes a tool then for deconstructing and understanding particular problems that cannot be solved otherwise. My art practice is in essential dialogue with my practice as an urban planner and architect and is informed by the real conditions of architecture and politics, which is often highly regulated and rigid. Through drawing and mark-making, new possibilities and vocabularies from unregulated expressions are possible.
