‘After me, the flood’, a title derived from the French expression ‘Après nous, le déluge’, explores the idea that objects are not simply static placeholders arbitrarily taking space. These objects are living, evolving vessels that continue to colour and change with and through interaction and experiences they exist alongside. Through a scale of texture and colour, Karamarko takes us on a journey through a changing emotional landscape of objects. These traditionally inanimate objects re-calibrate and transform in an alchemy of dark and light compositions utterly dependent on the viewer’s perception and lived experience.
These objects are observed and interacted with, but there is still some order; we don’t know what will happen afterwards, once the observer is no more.
