The sculptural object “Semi-finished product” is an ironic and at the same time thought-stimulating message. In this work the author investigates and portrays an iconic fast-cooking noodle block which embodied “quality” -fast, cheap and delicious reflecting the dominant demands and values of society. The sculptural object “Semi-finished product” is an original work which visually and in terms of content proceeds the tradition of modernism, where tragicomic interchange with philosophical reflections and conceptualism with the popularization of the ordinary and vulgar.
