‘Applied Literature’ Tables by János Hübler

Some information from the designer:

‘An installation/furniture using concrete in various planimetrical surface and books with concrete history. The absence of the books, due to their various dimensions, form different shapes of various depths and heights. The result: concrete structure will not have a final shape, because, by using it, visitors can change the books or remove them.

The politically outdated books have been donated by the Research Institute of Radio Free Europe, the once active radio channel, sponsored by the US, that fought against the Communism before the collapse of the Sovjet Union.

The installation constitutes a monument to eternal knowledge – set in concrete- and a monument to the degeneration of information, to the immortality of the past and to its disintegration, while also offering an opportunity to reflect on the essence of the book.

The aesthetic reaction is not generated by the composition, rather than the abstraction of the artwork. My aim is not to show the technical virtuosity, the perfection of the design but the conscious use of the technology, with all of its poorly, rigid potentialities. My control over the material is obligate on a certain level, but not my intention. The inspirations of the material are in the focus of my compositions.’
