Wallinstallation und Landscape after the battle, No 3 (2007). In her works Natalia Stachon continues the statement by Hannah Arendt that recollection is only possible through materiality. Her artworks cannot be assigned to a concrete past, however, they mediate in themselves the past, transience, thus transitoriness. The sculpture Landscape after the battle, No 3 which is to be seen together with a wall installation especially created for art space: emyt clearly shows signs of power and destruction. The material body of the things is damaged. Instead of preserving traces of the time for the present, Natalia Stachon creates a past in the present as a reference to the collective memory, to whose structure and function the observer is succumbed to by every form of recollection.
