Autobiographical notes

The modern world technical. Technology seems to me some new space encountered in the evolution of mankind, which he will pass. Since 1962, I mastered some form of art, . where technical pathos was clear - this is a geometric art, . kinetic art, . Art Region futures projects and, . Finally, . since 1976 Form, . which is called "Artifacts".,
. The latter is determined by the interest in the artistic synthesis, I have seen through the designed game interaction between the artificial object and nature.
. Trying to understand the sense of mystery, owning my consciousness for many years, I somehow suddenly discovered an indescribable depth of the word "artifact"
. And before this discovery, I, of course, uttered the word, along with many others, but each time, apparently, does not merge with the infinity of its meaning. When the floor was opened - it was mine, filled with meaning, which matured in my submissions. Here I will focus on those that are relevant to assimilate my artistic system.
The word "artifact" the thing a second nature, it is a thing made by man and, therefore, autonomous in relation to nature. And although the pathos of autonomy of the artifact to be trusted with caution, because its creator - a man - also the component nature, yet symbolically important moment of the isolation of the artifact as an artificial object, additional to the nature of. This autonomy of the artifact is important to identify new artistic links between the artificial object and nature. From the artistic interpretation of the artifact is related another - as Artfakta, which requires the full presence of the creative artist.
Further understanding of the artifact due to the tradition, culture. Here he appears as a symbolic eternal reality, as something, which can not be, but mysteriously that happens. Artifact in ancient cultures - a symbol of secrecy. In ancient Persia - a black stele-parallelepiped. In Amirabadskoy culture - is also a stele, but with twisted at 90 degrees relative to each other opposite bases.
The artifacts suggest the infinity of the world, the connection of all things a secret, really, this world is filled
. Criticism
. Francisco Infante is an artist of paradox.
. Not only, . that case and the game are central to his artistic vision, . but, . Like many other artists, . working in geometric or constructivist tradition, . he always chooses for himself the difficult path between the logical and illogical, . aesthetic ritual and a rejection of this ritual,
. Paying tribute to the mathematical properties of the order, . savings in material and efficiency of modern technology, . Infante again and again to nourish the idea of "accident" - this "suddenly" a fairy tale, . which, . as he wrote in 1918, critic Abram Efros, . is a hallmark of primitive or child art.,
. At first it may seem vzgyada, . that this identification of art Infante with a children's wonderland somewhat diminishes his dignity, . but actually, . This ability to make mistakes, . bypass and to provide a new, . unexpected light visual norms and conventions has always been and still is a decisive impetus to the creation of original art,
. We Infante this element of randomness and absurdity is particularly intriguing because of the conspicuous clear external organization, . structural ordering and cold proschitannosti, . inherent in his work - the design, . photographs and utilitarian projects,
. It acts as an engineer in aerodynamics, which, although it takes into account all possible options and chance, always bases its projects on a rigorous set of mathematical ratios.
. Perhaps the analogy would have liked very Infante - an artist who is always optimistic and expressed enthusiasm about the possibilities of science and technology - from video cameras to intergalactic travel
. And the result is the worship of deep faith, a common and for an engineer, and for the artist, that the essence of life - is a process, not the result, a plurality, not singularity. By the way, why is it so important to treat your photos Infante, not as a static "art", namely as a document recording his artifacts, themselves, in turn, just moments continuum. After Infante began his artistic career with the group "Movement" in Moscow in 1962, just as an artist Kineticist.
. If everything around us - the process, motion and serial, how can an artist to "stop the world and leave" N in the 1970's and 80's Infante tried to solve this problem in his conception of an artifact - a geometric object rendered in the natural environment. "
. Acting on this method, the artist sets of different size mirrors at various angles to the natural landscape (which can be ground, sand, snow, water, foliage, etc.) so as to achieve optical ambiguity
. Airiness of these mirrors, . their reflectivity impression, . that these objects are in fact an integral part of the environment, . ie, . that they themselves creations of nature, . and not human, . whereas the distorted images, . they pose to the contrary - that they are strangers in this environment,
. As a result, Infante can not install a series of interactions between nature, . artist and the spectator, . thereby turning to the crucial dichotomy of "natural" and "artificial" and then he captures the individual moments, . or "units" of the visual experience in Photos, . which subsequently often mixes, . creating new cycles (such as a photo album "Presence"),
. Again Infante solves this problem a paradox, defining the artist as a mediator between the "natural" and "non-natural".
. It found its clearest expression in the snow performances, . he and his wife Nonna Goryunova spent in the 70 years, . and in which strange creatures theatrical performed hieratic dances in the snow, combined urban and rural, . such as the march series of carrier bags on the ground in the water (1977), and in the game with the trees and the foil (80-e), . When Infante fixed the pieces of foil with different intervals on the trunks and branches of trees, . At the same time preserving the impression, . that the foil remains front and is in equilibrium.,
. Refined discourse of these artifacts leads us to question the very notions of "here" and "there", "close" and "far", "symmetry" and "asymmetry".
. These common denominators - the process, the game, the artist as a mediator - native art Infante with the traditions of Russian avant-garde, in particular with the works of Malevich, Gabo, Alexander Rodchenko and Vladimir Tatlin
