Relics I

Decanted holes made of plaster on display of glass and steel / 2016

The work Relics consists of a fragile display system made of steel and glass with various sand-coloured plaster casts, which call to mind archaeological finds.
The casting of the holes dug by hand in clay creates materializations of blind, underground searching movements - sculpturally blurred forms. The cast of the digging hand thus becomes a relic, the hole a vessel, the negative a positive.
Amorphous, root-like hollow forms that expand outward with many fingers, while the upper border, which leads into the shiny white interior, creates a stark contrast and calls to mind an archivist´s glove. The archaelogical process of unearthing or digginig up is radically brought into focus, while the object being searched for remains completely invisible.
