Casts made of plaster on illuminated mirror board / 2014

An illuminated board of reflective glass extends through the semi-darkness of the space. It holds about seventy little white objects, whose amorphous, bone-like forms are evoking archaeological finds. On closer inspection, those strange objects turn out to be negative imprints of diverse hand movements. By pouring fluid plaster in the gap between the hands with its grooves and lines, strange shell-like objects arise whose forms have to be retranslated by the viewer. The movement of an instant is frozen in material. The reflective shelf serves as a base, raising the objects to a suitable height for viewing, duly defines the space and its surroundings. It reproduces the hand shapes and creates visual perplexity as they constantly oscillate between the concave and
the convex.
