S T O R I E S
BY SASHA SIME
— are the stories of objects and materials, their interaction, indifference and physical contact, narrated by the artist Sasha Sime. This is a series of observations of the carefree rustling of plastic, the transparent weight of glass or the snobbery of stone, the caviar aftertaste of rubber or the synthetic aroma of adhesive tape, fixed in structures, text and video.


All stories are collected in the universal OX Poblenou space, like experiment elements placed in one container. The catalyst of the reaction and the most important element in this experiment and stories is the viewer.


PAPER /

Paper crumples
Wet paper crumples softly and easily
Dried, it resists and gets tough
Tough and no crumples anymore

#paper #paper #resistance #material
PLASTIC /

Plastic rustles. He is young, light and carefree.
Plastic has no pedigree, history or roots.
Plastic is transparent, but he can hardly be called clean.
They do not value plastic, and he does not show much respect in return.
Plastic is genuinely ill-mannered.
And indifferent.

RUBBER /

Rubber smells like black caviar
It inflates / deflates / experiences physical pain.
Stretches / shrinks
Leaving traces of talcum powder
Smelling like black caviar

#rubber #caviar #we inflate #weblowoff
A ROCK /

The rock broke off
From which side you'll never know
He is difficult to befriend, he is a snob / too serious.
But with him you can start a revolution.
Today
Tomorrow

CERAMIC /

Ceramic sells in stores
It can also be bought online,
but there is a chance it could break on it's way
and turn to trash.
If you order white ceramic online,
delivered, you could receive white trash

ADHESIVE TAPE /

Adhesive tape is like an old friend —
It is always trusty, even when unreachable
I like the aftertaste of glue / plastic on my teeth
This aftertaste of hastily work

#adhesivetape #scotch # aftertaste #glue #bite
GLASS /

Glass is heavy
Every time I lift it, I wonder at its weight
It is transparent, but heavy
Like very heavy air
Like very heavy air

I love glass, but I'm not all clear with it

ALUMINIUM /

Aluminium, answer the call.
Aluminium, answer the call.
Answer the call, Aluminum.
Take the tube, Aluminum.
Read the message, aluminium.
Check the mail, aluminium.
Be in touch, aluminium.

#aluminum #beintouch
STORY/

Story is a lot of words that have at least some meaning.
At least some.

There are, of course, meaningless stories,
but few are a fan of them.

Who ever wants to get another batch of nonsense?

You?

Me?
