Santa Hirša "Andris Breže. Gaismas konstruktors"

Santa Hirša "Andris Breže. Designer of the Light"

"If one were to seek an analogy for Breže’s works in the world of sound, one might imagine a monotonous robot’s voice practically instructing and commenting, telling of what is around us, things which are visible but not always seen. Usually these are everyday yet unusual paradoxes which absurdly turn the meanings of visual symbols on their heads. Over more than four decades, Breže’s style has employed bigger and smaller jokes and witticisms to deconstruct the prevailing system of communication and signs embodied by language, objects, natural forms and visual art as a manmade phenomenon. Usually this language of deconstruction has been decidedly constructive and functional, exciting in a craftsman-like fashion. Rather than demolishing and abandoning, it orders and arranges elements of wholeness in new combinations." (Santa Hirša)
