Alginate, nails, 250 x 280 cm
Alginate is usually used as an impression material to make detailed duplicates. Here, the material itself becomes the sculpture. The initially liquid and then elastic gel mass slowly shrinks into a thin, stiff "skin" that uncontrollably deforms into an independent, cracked, fragile object. At the same time, the spatial conditions inscribe themselves into the material. The vulnerable and interconnected body becomes physically tangible here.
