The art works represent colour variations of a flooded tennis court seen from above. This flooded condition makes the practice of this sport impossible and therefore transforms the tennis court into something dysfunctional and in some way useless, unless it is given a second life. Conversely, the question arises, whether Supakitch actually paints flooded tennis courts or gives the tennis courts a second life as pools, thus appropriating them and making them unique through his distinctive style.
Back to the metaphor of the highly praised straight and white tennis court lines, who are suddenly blurred by the Supakitch’s floods. If the idea of breaking the uncompromising rules is not only applied to tennis, but to the whole social system, the artist raises a very critical topic about the existence of rules in general. In the recent series the alleged rigidity becomes dynamism, only by changing the perspective or in SupaKitch’s case the filter. What the artist additionally suggests is that instead of labeling something as useless, you can repurpose it while also adapting its tools. SupaKitch has illustrated this metaphor with a touch of humor through his self-modified tennis racket – which became a racket net.
