2013, steel, 187 x 26 cm
The sculpture is the product of an intensive process, the artist grappling with the material over the course of several weeks – the material being a several-hundred-kilo steel rod 26 cm thick and 187 cm long. During the process Brzeski made use of all the tools available to him: drills, files, mills and grinders. ‘At Heart’ is an extreme test of the sculptural genre, as well as a characteristic figure of the impossible, both lyrical and oppressive at once. Open-heart surgery that ventures into a dangerous obsession.
