catgut suturing thread, crochet
250 x 140 x 250 cm
Tri-dimensional work composed of 5 pieces in form of a lung. At 2,5m of height and a diameter of 2,8m invites you to get inside . Into the center of our existence as a human being. The lung feeds us, gives us life. Every breath is unique and each of ist passages leaves a mark on our interior – a personal imprint. Aromas, fragrances, bouquets, smells, airs of distant places, a dear person …. are recorded invisibly. The hand-knit crochet technique and the Catgut characteristics give shape and volume to the work making it look like a great drawing in the air. An invitation to discover what is there between the OBVIOUS and the HIDDEN.
