BREAKING POINT. Series of sculpture, 2018

A ‘breaking point’ can be expressed in a mathematical formula, in music, or defined in psychological terms. 

Ekaterina Malakhova’s Breaking Point series presents us with geometric forms which each represent an ideal.

From the outside, an ideal’s internal tensions are not always apparent to the viewer. The closer we move to the core however, the greater our appreciation of that dialogue becomes.

Breaking Point invites you to explore your understanding of the limits of an ideal. Of the necessity of ideals. Do we need something to strive for? How rigid are your ideals? And what is your breaking point?
