This unique object of painted black steel, attached to the ceiling, evokes a certain state of mind of the artist.
“She-Giant” is a contradictory portrait of a dwarf – her 280 cm heigh body is prenaturally large and overscaled, yet surprisingly flimsy.
A ciggarette in one hand, a missing shoe… Whose portrait could it be? A sot jogger in ragged clothes was running through the streets of Berlin’s Kreuzberg when the artist noticed her. She was the model for “Fucking Jogging” – a sculpture made of seemingly frail steel tubes painted in vivid “sporty” colors and scrap metal.
The monumental yet frail and shaky composition is an illusionistic trick of a sculptor.
The object is a drawing recreated in a 20:1 scale using welded steel bars. It is based on a sketch made by the artist after staring straight into the sun for 10 seconds.
A study of potentiality – pure, raw, sculptural mass, but at the same time also a play on the weight of the art and its forms of exhibition.
This sculpture is more of a hallucination than a study of the body, a sketch in space woven of snatches of breezy, dry grasses, a dope apparition in the shape of a human body, its head fading into an amorphous cloud of smoke.
