MORNING STAR by Karina Smigla-Bobinski

Words

Some time ago we presented Karina Smigla-Bobinski and her artwork Ada. Now she’s back with her latest piece ‘Morning Star’. This installation is made of 200 arrows, that apparently hit their target. The arrows create a ball that seem to float freely in the room, spinning around its own axis. Karina Smigla-Bobinski says: ‘Morgenstern (Morning Star) is a celebration of ambivalence. The first look reveals an aureole of black lines that are intercepted with white and red, in the end spreading out into slender triangles. Just as though an explosive charge has been detonated and all the material is being hurled into every direction – pure energy near the centre and slowing down movement and chaos to the outside.’
