"FUTURES CONTRACT, HARDCOPY 2", 2019 BRASS, BRONZE TINTED MIRROR, CARBON FIBER, LAMINATED CHIPBOARD

DAVID JABLONOSWKI WAS BORN IN 1982 IN BOCHUM, GERMANY. JABLONOWSKI NOW LIVES AND WORKS IN AMSTERDAM. IN HIS WORKS, JABLONOWSKI EXAMINES THE SURFACE AND THE EVOLUTION OF THE CONTEMPORARY COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES. IN THE FORM OF SCULPTURES, VIDEOS AND INSTALLATIONS, HE FOCUSES ON THE THEME OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF LANGUAGE AS A TECHNICALLY REPRODUCIBLE CODE AND ITS AESTHETIC DEVELOPMENT WITH REGARD TO THE COMMUNICATION OF KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION.
THE ARTISTIC MEDIUM OF SCULPTURE SEEMS TO BE CONTRARY TO THIS TOPIC. HIS ARTISTIC INTEREST IS ON THE SCULPTURAL QUALITY OF COMMUNICATION TECHNIQUES AS WELL AS THE SPECIFIC AESTHETICS OF DIFFERENT HISTORICAL INFORMATION CODES AND FORMATS, WHICH MAKE A LONG-TERM IMPACT ON PERCEPTION AND CULTURAL SELF-CONCEPTION.

THE WORKS FUTURES CONTRACT, HARDCOPY, WERE INCLUDED IN THE SHOW FUTURES CONTRACT AT SPAZIOA, PISTOIA.THE EXHIBITION TITLE REFERS TO A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN PARTNERS IN THE FIELD OF FINANCE REGARDING A COMMODITY OR SERVICE IN A SPECIFIED FUTURE. THE AGREEMENT MIGHT GIVE LONG-TERM CONFIDENCE IN AN UNCERTAIN ECONOMY OF RISING AND DECLINING VALUES. IT ALSO ASSUMES AN UNDERSTANDING OF FUTURE NEEDS, HOWEVER, AND HOW THEY MAY BE PREFERABLY FULFILLED. SUCH FUTURE FORESIGHT MIGHT BE VIEWED CRITICALLY IN TERMS OF OUR GLOBAL ECONOMIES, ECOLOGIES, AND FRAGILE PROSPERITY. IT MIGHT ALSO EXEMPLIFY AN ENTREPRENEURIAL WAY OF THINKING THAT LINKS GROWTH AND PROSPERITY TO TECHNOCRATIC AND QUANTIFIABLE VALUES, RAISING QUESTIONS AS TO HOW THIS REASONING RELATES TO SOCIAL-GENERATIONAL WELFARE, POST-WAR CONTRACTS ON PEACE, ECONOMIC EXCHANGE, AND EQUALITY AND ITS REWARDS.
IN CONTRAST, EXPRESSIVE SCULPTURES IN CARBON FIBER ARE SHAPED BY HAND, UNDERMINING THE SURPLUS CHARACTER OF THIS HIGH-TECH MATERIAL FOR WEIGHT REDUCTION AND HIGH PERFORMANCE. THE SCULPTURES, HANDLING THE SAME TITLE AS THE EXHIBITION, INDICATE INTERESTS IN THE ABSTRACT PROCESSES OF TRADING IN GENERAL. MORE SPECIFICALLY THE SCULPTURES CAN BE INTERPRETED AS FIGURES. IN THIS CASE THE FIGURE STANDS FOR AN ABSTRACTED EQUIVALENT OF A FUTURE CONTRACT. THE WORD FIGURE BY THIS IS ALSO RELATED TO THE IDEA OF AN APPENDIX AND ITS ENCOUNTERING OF INTERTWINED ‘FIGURES’- A TOOL FOR EXPLANATION. IN THAT SENSE THE ADDITIONAL TITLE ‘HARDCOPY’ LINKS TO THE PHYSICAL IMPLEMENTATION OF SUCH A FIGURE. THE CHOICE FOR CARBON FIBER, AS ONE OF THE MORE RECENT DEVELOPED ARTIFICIAL MATERIALS AND ITS REGULAR USE FOR HIGH TECH PRODUCTION, COMES DOWN TO THE SAME INTEREST IN A SPECULATION OF THE FUTURE IMPACT OF A CERTAIN MATERIAL OR COMMODITY, MAINLY PLASTIC. IN THE SAME WAY THE RATHER HANDMADE QUALITIES, LIKE WEAVING OF CARBON FIBER, MAKE A LINK TO CLOTH AND A GIVE THE SCULPTURES AN ALMOST CLASSICIST APPEARANCE.
