Relics II

Decanted holes made of plaster/ 2017

In the work Relics, traces that are left by the body while digging a hole into the sandy ground are casted in countless layers of plaster, and recovered as a positive form. The cast of the digging hand thus becomes a relic, the hole turns into a container and the negative impression changes into positive shape. The resulting pieces, emerging from the conversion of action into artifact, manifest themselves as highly aesthetic, vessel-like forms, whose coarse-grained surface is interspersed with particles of shells, recalling antique, encrusted underwater treasures.
