The title of the collection of ceramic works Ctrl C, Ctrl V refers to two popular computer key combinations: copy, paste. A simple gesture allows as to copy and repeat endlessly a chosen piece of digital information in an uncomplicated way. While making these works I was thinking over the question of originality of a copy in the relation to a prototype. What kind of connection is there between the copied objects?

The collection consists of three groups of ceramic objects: Triplex System, Non-Functional Forms and SVC / SHC. Each of them refers to the question of repetition (of a shape, an idea or a gesture), at the same time linking them up with a mechanical reproduction, what is stressed by the titles of the works.
