new sculpture to be made in and for Italy03 Apr 2019, Posted by Uncategorized in
A new work titled ‘ In search of a ceiling’ will be made for the Italian town of Fontanarosa. Chris will make the marble sculpture this coming May in Italy. The artwork will be a small space that one person can enter. It depicts a place in time, a place we consider ‘home’ in that moment. What determines the idea of ‘home’? Walls without traces, without any recollection of living, are witnesses of space but not of the lives shaped by it and vice versa. I want to create walls without traces on the outside, on the inside, the walls show a collection of prints as if we were searching for a ceiling, a roof to complete the feeling of ‘home’. The traces are made solely on the inside. You have to investigate the sculpture and enter it. Not act on your first impression and assume there is nothing to see. Like many seemingly uninteresting environments, it’s the ideas and thoughts that surface in reaction to the space, that color it. The sculpture will measure 220 (h) x 125 x 125cm.
