Kisser or the kissing machinery is just a romantically imagined sculpture.
It is a mechanism that is moving fake lips made of latex, and puts them
in the position of giving a kiss. The machine is mechanical and works
on a moving handle. This way a viewer can mechanically kiss him/herself
if he/she hasn't got anyone else to kiss him/her. The mechanism itself
is open and visible to the viewer. This sculpture is trying to overcome
the barrier in-between the viewer and an artwork.
I'm trying to deal with the question of alienation and overflowing loneliness
that immerged from transformation of living conditions and rules, into
complicating human relationships. There are lots of products in the
stores which are made to fulfill the need for closeness with another
person. From film pornography and specialized stores which offer you
to buy "all your unlived dreams" till the virtual reality
which supposed to simulate the real one. These are conditions that have
made the field of self enjoyment to wide out in extremely different
What the market can not satisfy is the need for tenderness, love and
closeness to another person. In that way this machine too, at first
tries, but as every machine it will hardly manage to fulfill these needs.
Still it can point out the rising problem, by making it absurdly visible.
