Abstract constructions and architectural models made from appropriated materials.

There exists a true danger for this sculpture series to be absorbed into the institutionalized, postmodern discourse of deconstructivism, when it is in fact deconstruction, as implied in a literary analysis that this work is in debt to. Tyrome is not playing with a giant erector set: he has not set out to pursue a structuralist analysis: on one hand shiny color on the other broken toys, combining these oppositions in order to simply point at the general biased state of the human cultural condition: he has displaced the above mentioned opposition with the hope of creating a new metaphor, to point at new meaning: in art this comes down to making critical works. Tyrome wants to make critical forms. He achieves this technically with a dose of spontaneous construction mixed in with a certain dependence on social behaviors.” Quote from essay by Gioj De Marco. Written for the catalog “Constructions” Featuring the work made for the show: “Rifiuto Riusato Ad Arte”, Brescia, Italy 2005
