“PreMaster Budding Blaster Theory (Ethno Style)” is an abstract sculpture which consists of old found chairs, stools, metal rods, words written from old fabrics, paint and ethnoprints. The different materials form a tower of banality which exists as an artistic postulate in the tradition of dadaism, being the antidote of latest trends and tendencies in Art. The pun of the title charges the artwork with humor and underlines its parodistic meaning. Since the artwork also proclaims to be a “theory,” it is involuntarily lifted up on an intellectual, academic level. At the same time this “upgrading” is questioned ironically, as too often these “theories” can be unmasked as a pretentious background behavior.
