Responsing to the “boom of visuality”, Mayofis broadcasts digital nature with its own analogue media. The sheets, made in the traditional technique of manual photographic printing, are glued onto canvas-covered tablets; almost everywhere the edges of the images are deliberately carelessly cut off, which gives the impression of the work of an artist-designer. Such a presentation (besides the fact that it raises the cost of works on paper) is designed to sharpen the boundaries, assembly joints, which have previously created the main attraction in the art of Mayofis. Image commentary - not just a sign of conceptualism, but an important quality of the global network - now turns into a postscript below, taking up a separate piece of paper. Thanks to this, as well as the dragged base, the work is asserted in the property of the object.
