CONCRETE BURDEN... / 2006
 


 

This work was realized in the context of a group exhibition in Herford, Germany. The work is now included in the permanent collection of the Martha museum of Herford. The exhibition took place in the city of Herford. A few works were integrated in shops and schools and some were placed in public spaces. We choose for an outside location, a hidden place under the entrance hall of a social school. The place inspired us to work around the subject of gravity. Standing on that spot, one could literally feel the weight of the concrete construction bearing down on his shoulders. This feeling of gravity and pressure was translated into an image in which vulnerability is revealed in a very simple way.
