Irina Gabiani: Domino Principle (the end is your choice)
This series of works by Irina Gabiani portrays the artist’s exploration into the realm of hedonism with its constant quest for beauty and pleasure by human beings.
The works are presented in a sequence following rules of the game of dominoes, where every tile (canvases and wood) implies and determines the next one. Just like in life where one decision can impact consequent events.
In this works Irina Gabiani considers the positive aspects of hedonism, which has accompanied the development of humanity. We – as a society – have developed art, architecture, music, food… but even science and medicine thanks to the search for our wellbeing.
The real problem with hedonism is the same as with the development of our society: selfishness. The problem lays in human attitude: how far can we go searching for pleasure without jeopardizing our society as a whole? How far can we go with the search of wealth, without damaging the whole world?
This selfishness is causing the negative deviation of all of our activities. As with any other principle, exaggeration is always defective and can result in destruction…
…And we stand – therefore – in front of a choice, which is represented at the end of this Domino sequence, where we are called to make a fundamental decision: What will we choose, selfishness and destruction or selflessness and survival?
