Procedere, Performance/ Video Installation, 12min, 2016
Procedere is an attempt to renegotiate classical sculpture.
Here, the naturally grown natural stone is radically broken and crushed by hand in a few hours in an artificial process.
There is a certain poetry in this aesthetic process of crushing that relates to the traditional theme of "transience" and that of "natural beauty". Stone as a time-honoured sculptural material served primarily to perpetuate an idealised concept of beauty.
This work however does not involve a sculptural end product. The emphasis is placed on an ephemeral process. What remains is an installation projection of the process on a sand-covered floor.
