Sculpture description:
...STainless Steel Abstract/Contemporary/Modern/ Conundrum sculpture/statue For sale and Commission for outside/Outdoors in the Park/Public Space/Urban Landscape by the Talented Modern Sculptor Plamen Yordanov who writes... " On one side of a strip of paper is written "the statement on the other side of this paper is true". On the other side of the paper is written "the statement on the other side of this paper is false". Now turn the piece of paper into a Mobius strip. What are you left with other than confusion? The paradox is true, in both cases. When you have a Mobius strip, the message written on it is always true. Yet, it is also always false... The shape of the Mobius strip challenges the widely accepted concept of the sign as a structure that always has two sides. The Swiss linguist Ferdinand de Saussure compares the sign with a list, or a coin with two sides. Yet, if the list took the form of the Möbius strip the notion of the structure would become problematic. We encounter two-sided structures everywhere in life and politics. Such structures constitute language, discourse, and all sorts of semiotic systems that allow us to describe the world. That is why the author of Postmodern Condition, Jean-Francois Lyotard finds the paradox of the Möbius strip of great importance. He believes that Möbius strip bears relations to the primordial world, the world which we have lost when we entered the symbolic realm of language, based on structures. The Möbius strip exceeds the discourse of language and all other sorts of utterance. For Lyotard, the Möbius strip represents the Libidinal band and the unconscious activity that takes place in society. The rational thought, on the other hand, is part of the three dimensional space, which Lyotard calls `theatrical volume`. The rational thought can operate only through structures that, unlike the libidinal band, have two sides. Political and social systems exploit our basic primordial intensities by channeling them into stable structures. Möbius Band silhouette by Plamen Yordanov has a classical oversized "monumental" notion - not only as mathematical, but also as ontological category. It brings us back to the threshold of the world of politics and languages, to the place where the irrational and rational meet up. Its dimensions and vertical positioning remind one of the classical concept of sculpture, yet its paradoxical form denies contemplative functions. The band is on the surface but goes underneath, it looks irrational yet it is achieved through rational means. Thus the work brings to the surface some irresolvable contradictions of the world which we inhabit.
