The piece was prepared for the exhibition “Manipulations: on economies of deceit” (curated by Adam Budak). Perpendicular posts, made of black painted cardboard, placed directly on the floor, form a spatial visualization of a statistical bar chart, such as is often found on the financial columns of contemporary newspapers. The monotonous, Sisyphean, rhythm of growths and falls, forms a minimalist abstract installation that resembles a children’s puzzle or domimo brick. The diagonally falling light draws shadows on the floor and references the graphic, newspaper original, of the composition. The potential of Budny’s work is realized in this incessant oscillation between the enigmatic self-restrained form of an abstract chart and the real economic turbulence that is translated into the twists of the curves of growth.
