Zuza Golińska’s Red Giant refers to her previous project called Suns, which also addresses the spectre of a climate catastrophe. Golińska’s strategy of work is based on using waste products from manufacturing plants whose future is uncertain. The days of shipyards, mines and factories are numbered, automation is replacing manual labour. The artist cooperates with skilled workers, using their knowledge and expertise. Perhaps in the near future they will be worth their weight in gold.
The totemic forms of Golińska’s steel works trigger associations with the prehistoric solar deities. Before the Neolithic revolution, which accelerated the development of human civilisation, tribesmen used to bow to the likes of these. Neither the revolution nor life on Earth as such would have been possible without solar energy. The Neolithic gave rise to agriculture and animal husbandry, i.e. production and consumption. The Latin word consumere means to destroy, rob, conquer. After the heyday of capitalism, modern overproduction and compulsive consumption refer us to the original meaning of the word.
