mezzaterra11 – flat gallery presents Roman Ondak's exhibition, presenting Adams Keys ( 2016). Borrowing from everyday experiences, found objects and situation s that are often related to his personal history, Ondak creates margins of subtle and philosophical links and narratives between reality and representation. Most works of Ondak bring viewers active engagement in which interaction between the audience and his work is generally a key role in re placing their quotidian attention.

 

Here Ondak represents a door knob and keys, which once belong ed to his older son. Adam was a teenager when his father appropriated this set of keys with a keychain from him. The situation showing the key in the doorknob s lock is shifted from Adam s reality to an exhibition context. With physical and temporal displacement and poetic alterations Ondak's work evokes slumbering memories and a sensation of empathy and draws back to the spectator s surroundings in quiet and imaginative ways us ing its great impact of simplicity.
